Faherty played a huge role in Salthill Devon’s U21 League success in 2006. His form didn’t go unnoticed and Galway United manager Tony Cousins signed him in 2007.

He spent two and a half seasons at Eamonn Deacy Park before signing for St Patrick’s Athletic, Vinny had two separate spells at Richmond Park, having spent a year in Australia in between.

At the start of the 2013 season, Faherty signed for Stephen Kenny at Dundalk but didn’t start as many games as he would have liked.

Faherty returned home and signed for Galway United in January 2014, and in the promotion campaign that followed, he played a part in almost every match of the season, scoring 8 goals in the process.

He couldn’t agree terms at Eamonn Deacy Park, so a move to Limerick follow just before the start of the 2015 season. He slowly broke his way into the team in the first half of the season. After the mid-season break, he hit a rich vein of form, finishing the season with 12 league goals to his name, along with the Player of the Month Award for August.

Faherty returned to Eamonn Deacy Park for the 2016 season, signing a two-year-deal with United before Christmas 2015.
