Career[edit]

He started his League of Ireland football career with Home Farm Everton in 1996. He had previously played for Cherry Orchard F.C. where he won the FAI Junior Cup, the Leinster Junior Cup and the Leinster Senior League in 1994–95. He played 45 league games for Home Farm Everton F.C., scoring 20 goals before moving on to Shelbourne. Roddy Collins signed him for Bohemians in December 1998 and he scored his first goals for the club a month later with a brace in a 4-0 FAI Cup win over Waterford United. He played 55 league games for Bohemians scoring 8 goals. He was loaned out to Crusaders during the 1999/2000 season to recover from injury but returned in time to be part of Bohs' squad for the 2000 FAI Cup Final. He was a member of the 2001 double winning Bohemians squad.

A strong central defender or midfielder with an eye for goal, he later had spells at Dublin City where he played 35 league games and scored 12 goals and Monaghan United where he played 68 league games and scored 20 goals.[1]
