Mark played underage football with Monaghan United before joining the youth academy at Wolverhampton Wanderers. In 2009 he was signed by Bolton Wanderers for £1m but never made a senior appearance for them.

While at Bolton he had brief loan spells at St Johnstone and Macclesfield Town but in July 2012 he signed a permanent deal at Crawley Town where he played for two seasons.

In July 2014 Mark moved north of the border to join Scottish side Kilmarnock and, although he signed a three year deal, after two seasons at Rugby Park he returned to Crawley for a second spell in July 2016.

In January 2019 Mark ended his time at Crawley and returned north to sign for Dundee United. A cruciate injury hampered his progress at the club and in September 2021 he went on loan to Dunfermline Athletic. Then, in January 2022 he joined Stephen O'Donnell at Dundalk on another loan deal.
