Danny played his youth football with St Kevin’s. He moved to Brighton but never made a senior appearance for the Seagulls and instead had to settle for Under-23 football.
After four years the Dubliner returned home and in December 2018, he signed with Keith Long’s Bohemians side ahead of the 2019 season. Danny scored 11 goals in 25 league starts and three sub appearances in that campaign including a wonder strike in the derby against Rovers. Danny’s performances saw him scoop the PFAI Young Player of the Year award as well as being named in the Team of the Year. Last season the 22-year-old started just five league games as the Gypsies finished runners-up.
The midfielder has represented the Republic of Ireland at Under-16, Under-19, and Under-21 levels. He made his U-21 debut in a 3-0 win over Luxembourg in Tallaght in March 2019 and would appear in European qualifiers for Stephen Kenny’s side later that year.
