Padraig came through the schoolboy set-up at Shamrock Rovers and made his senior debut, aged 18, when he came on as a sub in the closing stages of the game away to Athlone Town on 16th March 2006. He had a loan spell with Kildare County during the 2007 season when he scored 5 goals in 13 league appearances.

He built something of a reputation for himself as a regular marksman for the Hoops, netting 11 goals for the first team squad including a crucial goal against the Hoops fierce rivals Bohemians on the 2nd of October 2009 to send the Hoops to the top of the table.

In the winter of 2009, as Shamrock Rovers were looking to strengthen their squad for a title challenge, Padraig was deemed surplus to requirements by new boss Michael O'Neill and his contract at Tallaght was not renewed. It didn't take long for Sligo Rovers boss Paul Cook to sign up the Carlow native and he was named as Sligo's second signing of the '09 close season.

In 2010 Padraig made 27 league appearances for Sligo scoring a remarkable 17 league goals and in September 2010 he signed for Portuguese top flight side Paços de Ferreira. He made 17 league appearances for the Portuguese side but in August 2011 he signed on a season long loan with English side Accrington Stanley.

On 13 August 2012 Padraig signed a permanent deal with Accrington.
