Maguire started his career at Waterford United, making his debut in July 2011 against Mervue United.[3] During his career at Waterford he scored 14 goals in 32 games.[4] Waterford's chairman, John O'Sullivan said of Maguire, "I'm a great fan of Lionel Messi at Barcelona. When I look at Seanie, he really reminds me of him."[5] Maguire finished as top scorer in the 2012 League of Ireland First Division.[6]

West Ham United[edit]

In January 2013 he signed for West Ham United on a two and a half year contract.[5][6] In January 2014 he was an unused substitute in West Ham's 5–0 FA Cup defeat by Nottingham Forest.[7] He was released by West Ham at the end of the 2014–15 season.[8]

Sligo Rovers[edit]

In February 2014 he signed on loan for Sligo Rovers. Maguire made his debut for Sligo on 24 February in a 4–1 away win in the Setanta Cup against Crusaders.[9] His only goal for the club came on 27 July in a 2–0 home win against Limerick[10] The loan period which lasted until August 2014 and included two Europa League qualifying games against Rosenborg.[11][12][13]

Accrington Stanley[edit]

In September 2014, he joined Accrington Stanley on loan,[14] making his football league debut against Northampton Town on 20 September, scoring his first goal and Accrington's fifth in a 5–4 victory.[15][16] In December 2014, Maguire returned to West Ham at the end of the loan. He had scored four goals in 13 games.[17] On 24 December, although his return to West Ham had been announced, Accrington extended his loan until 18 January 2015.[18]

Cork City[edit]

After half a season at Dundalk, where he won a Leinster Senior Cup medal but didn’t make the matchday squad for the FAI Cup Final, Maguire signed for Cork City on 9 December 2015.[19] On 27 February Maguire scored in his first competitive game for City, in the 2016 President's Cup final against former club Dundalk.[20] A week later, Maguire scored twice in a 2–0 win over Bohemians on his league debut for Cork.[21] He finished the season as the league's top scorer with 18 goals,[22] and he also scored the late winner as Cork beat Dundalk 1–0 in the FAI Cup.[23] On 3 June 2017 it was reported that Maguire had agreed a transfer to Preston North End by the end of July 2017.[24][25] On 6 July 2017, Maguire scored a hat-trick against Levadia Tallinn in the second leg of their first qualifying round of the 2017–18 UEFA Europa League at Turners Cross to become Cork City's leading goalscorer in European competition.[26]

Preston North End[edit]

On 3 June 2017, City and Preston agreed a deal for Maguire to join Preston at the end of July.[27] He signed a three-year deal with the club, with Cork City describing the fee as "an appropriate but undisclosed compensation package."[28] Maguire made his competitive debut for Preston on the opening day of the Championship season, playing 74 minutes before being substituted, against Sheffield Wednesday.[29] His first competitive goal for Preston came against Barnsley on 9 September.[30] Maguire returned from a hamstring injury in March to score two goals off the bench as Preston beat Bolton Wanderers FC 3–1 on 3 March.[31] He continued his comeback from injury with another goal from the bench against Bristol City FC as he netted the winner in a 2–1 win at Deepdale Stadium.[32]
