Biography


Starting off at Bohemians of Dublin, Jimmy was awarded the Irish Young Player of the Year award in 1994 and signed for Newcastle United that year. The Republic of Ireland Under-21 internationalist had a loan spell with Rotherham United in 1996 before arriving at Tannadice in February 1998 on a short-term loan deal, making his debut as a substitute against Hibs. His next and last outing was against Celtic three weeks later, again as a late substitute. In total he played five minutes of football for United before returning to his parent club at the end of the season.

He signed for Reading in March 1998, returning to Ireland two years later to spend eight successful years with Shelbourne, winning several Irish championships. In his last two season there he played alongside future Dundee United captain Sean Dillon. In February 2008 he joined Sporting Fingal but soon had to retire due to injury. Jimmy was appointed interim manager at Shamrock Rovers and was eventually replaced by former United player Michael O'Neill. He later became the Republic of Ireland’s Under-18s head coach.

  • A game of few chances, but totally dominated by us. It was doubly disappointing therefore to make the breakthrough thanks to Andy Dow's own goal from an Erik Pedersen free-kick only to lose the equaliser just 60 seconds later!

  • Last Appearance - Celtic 1 - 1 Dundee United

    Meeting number six and at last a return of some description from the long running saga of games with Celtic. Not that the prospects looked particularly bright at the interval. The home side had taken the lead through Donnelly's well struck volley twenty minutes from the interval. But we survived all the pressure and came out of our shell in the second half to grab an equaliser with great leading up work by Craig Easton and Maurice Malpas, being finished off in style by Kjell Olofsson to give us our fourth consecutive draw in league games.
