Niall played with Leinster Senior League side Crumlin United in 2011/12 and in July 2013 he joined Bray Wanderers, signing for manager Pat Devlin. His initial stay with the Seagulls was brief and he left the club at the end of the 2013 season to return to Crumlin United. Niall then returned to Bray Wanderers in February 2014 when he was signed by new manager Alan Matthews for the 2014 season. He immediately became a regular in the Seagulls back line under Mathews and made 23 league appearances that year.

Niall only made three appearances in the first sixteen games of the Premier Division but he once again became a regular under Mick Cooke and played in all the other seventeen league games that year as Bray finished eighth. In December 2015, Niall moved to First Division side Drogheda United.

Niall went on to start the first twelve games of the First Division season, scoring the winner in the 1-0 win over Shelbourne, before he left the club in June 2016.
