Coventry-born and able to play at both fly-half and inside centre, he progressed through the London Irish development system and made his senior club debut while still a member of the Exiles Academy, aged 18 in October 2004.
Geraghty was capped by England at U21 and A-level, before making the first of his six Test appearances to date off the bench against France in the 2007 Six Nations. On his England debut against France he scored a penalty and a conversion.
After 95 appearances in 5 seasons for London Irish, Shane joined Northampton Saints in July 2009 and was man-of-the-match in the club's historic Heineken Cup win over Munster, as well as picking up an Anglo-Welsh Cup winner's medal following a dramatic final against Gloucester. Geraghty was subsequently selected for England's 2010 summer tour of Australia and New Zealand, featuring in all 3 of the midweek matches.
Having scored 216 points in just under 40 matches for the Saints, he moved across the Channel to join French club CA Brive for the 2011/2012 season and played a key role as the side reached the semi-finals of the Amlin Challenge Cup.
In April 2012, it was announced that Geraghty would be returning to former club London Irish for the 2012/2013 season having signed a new two-year deal.
Having played no part in London Irish's opening 6 games in the 2016/17 RFU Championship, Shane Geraghty was granted early release from his contract in order to join Bristol Rugby. He was released by Bristol at the end of the 2016-2017 season.
2017/18 season, Geraghty signed for Stade Francais in the French Top 14
