Niamh Fahey was born in Galway on the 13th of October 1987 and began her playing career with her local club Salthill Devon.
From there she joined Galway, where her winning penalty in the final against Raheny United helped them lift the FAI Cup in 2007, before making the move cross channel and representing Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool where she remains today.
She has also played in France with Bordeaux but her most successful spell trophy-wise was with the Gunners where she won numerous leagues and cups including a domestic treble in her first full season. She has also won an All Ireland ladies football title with Galway in 2004.
Fahey made her Republic of Ireland senior debut in 2007 and won her 100th cap for her country when they took on Poland in their Pinatar Cup recently. She is now just the fourth female player in Ireland's history to become a Centurion, following behind Emma Byrne (134), Áine O’Gorman (111), and Ciara Grant (105). And there’s still more to come.
