A former Manchester United trainee, Conor also spent time at Italian Serie B side Triestina. Conor played on trial for Shamrock Rovers through the 2011 pre-season, eventually signing a permanent deal on February 24th.

Conor made his senior debut away to Lisburn Distillery in the Setanta Cup on 14 March 2011 and made his league bow on April 1st, coming on as a 77th minute substitute in the 4-0 win over Drogheda United at United Park. He made 21 league appearances as Rovers won their second consecutive League title and played in the club's ground breaking European campaign that took them to the Group stages of the Europa League.

Conor re-signed for the 2012 season and played 14 league games as Rovers finished fifth. He stayed with Rovers for 2013 too, making a further 19 league appearances for the club. Rovers again finished fifth in the Premier Division but won both the EA Sports Cup and Setanta Cup.

In November 2013, Conor was released by Shamrock Rovers and a few days later he joined St Patrick's Athletic along with former Rovers team-mate Ken Oman. Conor went on to make 25 league appearances for the club as they finished third in the 2014 Premier Division. He also came off the bench in the FAI Cup Final, which the Saints won 2-0 against Derry City.

Conor remained at St Pats for 2015 and made 13 league appearances for the club, mostly from the bench, before signing for Derry City on July 28th 2015. He went on to make 9 league appearances as Derry finished seventh in the Premier Division. In his second season at the Brandywell Conor made 31 league appearances as Derry finished third behind Dundalk and Cork City, thus qualifying for the Europa League, but at the close of the 2016 season Conor left Derry to sign for John Caulfield at Cork City.
