Born in Skibbereen, County Cork, Davis first played competitive Gaelic football whilst at school at St. Fachtna's De La Salle Secondary School. He arrived on the inter-county scene at the age of seventeen when he first linked up with the Cork minor team, before later lining out with the under-21 side. He made his senior debut in the 1993 championship. Davis went on to play a key role for the team over the next seven years, winning four Munster medals and one National Football League medal. He was an All-Ireland runner-up on two occasions.
Davis was a member of the Munster inter-provincial team on one occasion, however, he ended his career without a Railway Cup medal. At club level he is an All-Ireland medallist with O'Donovan Rossa. He has also won one Munster and one championship medal.
Throughout his career Davis made 23 championship appearances for Cork. He retired from inter-county football following the conclusion of the 2000 championship.
Davis is widely regarded as one of Cork's greatest-ever Gaelic footballers. He has often been voted onto teams made up of the sport's greats, including at centre-forward on a special Cork team made up of players never to have won an All-Ireland medal.
