Mahony made his Waterford debut during the 2011 and immediately became a regular member of the starting fifteen. A Munster medalist in the minor grade, Mahony has yet to claim any silverware at senior level.
Mahony has played with Ballygunner since an early age.
Following several impressive performances in the intermediate grade during the 2009 season, Mahony was promoted to the senior team and immediately broke onto the starting team. He played a key role in Ballygunner's 1-17 to 0-19 defeat of Lismore in a replay of the county championship decider.
Ballygunner surrendered their championship title to De La Salle the following year, however, in 2011 Mahony lined out in a third consecutive championship decider. A 1-19 to 0-6 defeat of Tallow gave Mahony a second county club championship medal.
In 2011 Mahony made his senior debut in a National Hurling League game against Dublin. He was later included in Waterford's championship starting fifteen and made his championship debut against Limerick in a Munster semi-final. Although his debut season ended without any silverware Mahony ended the year as an All-Star nominee
Mahony is nephew to former inter county hurler Billy O'Sullivan and current Waterford hurler Shane O'Sullivan. His brother Philip Mahony is currently also a panel member on the Waterford senior hurling team.
