On 8 August 2008, the defender joined EFL Championship side Plymouth Argyle on loan till the end of the season, he made 31 league appearances for The Pilgrims, getting his first real taste of competitive first-team football.

Three days later, he made his Blackpool vow as the club marked their Premier League debut with a 4-0 win over Wigan Athletic. His first Premier League goal would come against his boyhood club Manchester United, at Bloomfield Road on 25 January 2011, a match Blackpool would eventually lose 3-2. Since then the centre-back has represented Blackpool 117 times, with the majority of his appearances coming in the EFL Championship. On 24 June 2014, the Irishman signed for Watford as a free agent.
