Reidy was an outstanding schools player with St.Patrick's College of Castleisland, and won the 2003 Dunloe Shield. He won two Munster Minor Football Championship medals with Kerry (2003 and 2004), and was a member of the Kerry minor side beaten by Laois in the 2003 All-Ireland Minor Football Championship semi-final and of the team which lost to Tyrone in the 2004 final.
2005 Kerry Juniors
Reidy was a member of the Kerry squad for the All-Ireland Junior Football Championship in 2005, starting at corner-back. Kerry defeated Tipperary GAA in the quarter-final of the Munster Junior Football Championship. They then overcame Limerick GAA in a replay to reach the final, with Reidy part of what was considered a very solid full-back line. However, Cork GAA, who subsequently won the All-Ireland championship, beat them in the final.
The Scartaglin man made his National Football League debut in 2005, against Mayo. He first broke through not the Kerry championship team in 2007, with a debut against Waterford in the Munster Senior Football Championship on June 3. He played in the corner-back spot vacated by Tom O'Suullivan, who moved to full-back following the retirement of Mike McCarthy. Despite his inexperience nad early difficulties, Reidy settled well and is recognised as a talented young back who blossomed during the Championship. He gave fine performances against Mark Vaughan of Dublin GAA and James Masters of Cork in the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship semi-final and final. Reidy played at corner-back as Kerry won the final by 3-13 to 1-9 against Cork GAA. The victory made him the first Scartaglin player to win a senior All-Ireland with Kerry.
Reidy also had a fine year with his club, which won the East Kerry Intermediate championship. As a result, the club qualified for the East Kerry Senior Football Championship proper, surprisingly reaching the semi-finals and almost beating the powerful Dr. Crokes in what was described as a "David and Goliath battle". At divisional level however, Reidy's St. Kieran's sides were knocked out in the second round of the Kerry Senior Football Championship by eventual champions Feale Rangers.
