Conor joined Bohemians from Dublin youth side Belvedere at the start of the 2005 season, He made his first team debut in a League Cup game against St Patrick's Athletic in June of that year and played his first League game away to Shelbourne the following August.

Conor stayed at Bohemians for six seasons picking up two league title medals in 2008 and 2009. He also won an FAI Cup medal in '08 and a League Cup medal in '09. In all he made 119 league appearances for the Gypsies, scoring once against Drogheda United at Dalymount Park in 2009.

At the end of the 2010 season Bohemians found themselves in financial difficulty and Conor was forced to move away, signing for English side Colchester United in January 2011. Conor spent just six months with Colchester, making 2 league appearances before returning to Ireland in July 2011, signing for Paul Cook at Sligo Rovers.

Conor made 5 league starts for Sligo in the latter stages of 2011, adding 5 more appearances from the bench. He was also an unused substitute in the 2011 FAI Cup final when Sligo beat Shelbourne at the Aviva Stadium after a penalty shootout.

He played 28 games for Rovers as they finished fourth in the league and in 2013 he went on to make another 25 appearances for Shamrock Rovers as well as picking up Setanta Cup and EA Cup winners medals as the Hoops made up for a disappointing league campaign by winning both trophies.

Conor was released by Shamrock Rovers in October 2013 and spent 2014 with SK Vard Haugesund in Norway. After one season by the fjords Conor returned to the LoI, signing up with newly promoted Longford Town on 3 February 2015. He went on to play in 29 league games for the Midlands club, captaining the side towards the end of the campaign, as Longford finished sixth in the Premier Division. He continued to captain the Midlanders through 2016, scoring once in 27 league appearances as Longford suffered relegation after just two seasons in the top tier.
