Quigley came to prominence as a schoolboy with noted Dublin club Belvedere[2] from where he signed for Millwall in 2003. He made his Football League debut as a substitute against Stoke City on 19 February 2005. After a further 8 appearances he moved home on loan to Shamrock Rovers for the rest of the 2005 League of Ireland season making his League of Ireland debut on 19 August[3] and he went on to make a total of 12 appearances under Roddy Collins.

Mark signed for St. Patrick's Athletic in 2006 and made a huge breakthrough during the 2007 season. He ended the campaign as second top scorer in the league and was voted PFAI Young Player of the Year.[4] He was also called up to the Ireland Under 23 squad for the game against Northern Ireland and reportedly impressed the watching national coach Giovanni Trapattoni.[5]

He scored three goals for St. Pat's during their 2008-09 UEFA Cup campaign, netting against JFK Olimps[6] and home and away against IF Elfsborg.[7][8]

After 148 appearances for St. Pats in all competitions, Quigley moved to Dalymount Park and Bohs' in time for the 2010 season.[9]

Quigley made a slow start to his Bohs career and it was 8 May before he netted his first league for the club when scoring the winner against Sligo Rovers.[10] Despite playing as a forward for most of his career, Pat Fenlon decided to use Mark as a winger and this played a part in a strike rate of only 4 goals in 34 league appearances for the Gypsies. When his contract expired at the end of the 2010 season, Quigley was released by Bohemians.


On 4 December 2010 he signed for Dundalk along with fellow Bohemians teammate Jason Byrne in a one-year deal.[11]

Sligo RoversEdit

Quigley signed for Sligo Rovers on 14 December 2011, to fight for a place alongside Danny North. Quigley scored the winning goal from the penalty spot against his former club Saint Patrick's Athletic to clinch Sligo's first league title since 1977.

He won the PFAI Player of the Year for the 2012 League of Ireland season.[12]

Return to InchicoreEdit

In December 2013, he re-signed for St. Patrick's Athletic.[13]

Derry CityEdit

After spending the first half of the 2015 League of Ireland season out injured, Quigley signed for Derry City on Monday 6 July 2015.

Return to BohemiansEdit

After a short, unsuccessful spell at Derry City Quigley returned to Dublin and Bohemians in December 2015. He made his second debut for the club in the opening game of the 2016 season against Cork City. Quigley scored his first goals since his return to the club on the 18th of March, netting a brace against Wexford Youths.
