Keith Patrick Treacy (born 13 September 1988) is an Irish footballer who plays for Burnley and the Republic of Ireland. He spent his youth at Belvedere and began his professional career at Blackburn Rovers. Treacy has also had loan stints at Stockport County and Sheffield United and spent a year at Preston North End. He joined Burnley in 2011.

Club career[edit]

Blackburn Rovers[edit]

After youth football with Belvedere, Treacy signed his first professional contract in 2005 and made his Blackburn Rovers debut in a League Cup tie against Portsmouth as a substitute and made his first start against Coventry City in the FA Cup third round in a 4–1 defeat back in 2008, before being substituted off and replaced by striker Matt Derbyshire.

In July 2009, Treacy joined Sheffield United on a six-month loan deal,[2] making his début for the Blades in a 0–0 draw with Middlesbrough on the first day of the 2009–2010 season.[3] He soon followed his début up with two assists for the Blades against Watford the following week and a stunning long range goal three days later in a midweek match against Leicester City.[4] After starting the season as a regular in the Blades side he had dropped out of the team by November and terminated his loan stay early to return to Blackburn in mid December.[5]

Preston[edit]

He signed a two-and-a-half year contract with an option of a further year with Preston North End on 1 February 2010. He scored his first goal for the Lancashire outfit in a 3–1 defeat Crystal Palace on 5 April 2010. He scored 2 goals in a 3–1 win against his old club, Sheffield United.

Burnley[edit]

On 31 July 2011, Burnley confirmed that they had had an offer for Treacy accepted and that he would discuss personal terms with the Clarets. A day later, he signed a three-year deal after completing a medical.[6] He scored on his debut, coming on as a substitute on the 65th minute against Watford. The goal was the final goal in a 2-2 draw at Turf Moor. He started his first game in a year for Burnley in the 1-0 defeat against Leicester on the 29 December 2012 and scored the opening goal in a 2-0 win against Sheffield Wednesday on the first day of 2013. Despite this he remained a fringe player in the first team squad under managers Eddie Howe and Sean Dyche.

International career[edit]

On 11 August 2010, Treacy made his senior international debut for the Republic of Ireland against Argentina, coming on as a substitute in the second half for Keith Fahey in the first international at the new Aviva Stadium in Dublin.[7] On 24 May 2011, Treacy earned a starting place winning his third cap with an impressive display in the 2011 Nations Cup game against rivals Northern Ireland.
