Shane is a midfielder who spent the 2007/08 season in England with Plymouth Argyle. He returned home to join UCD in the summer of 2008 and made his debut for the Students in a 3-0 defeat at home to St Patrick's Ath on 3 August. He went on to make 13 league appearances for Pete Mahon's side as they suffered relegation from the Premier Division.

In February 2009 Shane signed for Paul Doolin at Cork City and made 16 league appearances, scoring twice, as the Rebels finished third in the Premier Division. But in February 2010 the club folded and Shane, like many of his team mates, signed for the supporter led Cork City Foras Co-op, making 30 league appearances and scoring four goals in their First Division campaign.

Shane played 20 times scoring four goals in the League as Limerick won the 2016 First Division before re-signing for 2017.

Back under the flag of 'Cork City FC', the club won the 2011 First Division title and Shane contributed six goals in 27 league appearances. Shane then spent two years with Cork City in the Premier Division, helping them to finish 6th in 2012 and 6th again in 2013. Shane scored nine league goals in those two seasons and made 60 Premier Division appearances.

Shane returned to his home town in October 2013, joining Limerick FC under Stuart Taylor. He was nearly ever-present during 2014, playing in 30 league games for the Blues and scoring three times as Limerick finished sixth in the league. He made another 30 league appearances in 2015 and scored four times as Limerick were forced into a relegation play-off.Shane played in both play-off matches as Limerick were defeated by Finn Harps and were relegated to the First Division.

The following year saw Limerick stroll to the 2016 First Division title with Shane captaining the side and scoring five times in 20 league appearances. He also picked up an EA Cup runners-up medal when Limerick reached the final but were beaten 4-1 on the day by St Patrick's Athletic.

In November 2018, Shane signed for Waterford from Limerick.

Shane was voted Galway Player of the Year in 2020 and he signed back with the club in 2021.
