He arrived on the inter-county scene at the age of seventeen when he first linked up with the Clare minor team before later joining the under-21 side. He made his senior debut during the 2010 championship.[1] Over the next few seasons O'Connell became a regular member of the starting fifteen and won one All-Ireland medal.

At club level O'Connell is a one-time championship medallist with Clonlara.
