A right-handed batsman and right-arm fast-medium bowler, he played seven times for the Ireland cricket team between 1936 and 1939, including six first-class matches. He made his debut for Ireland against Scotland in June 1936 in a first-class match. He scored 12 not out in the Irish first innings and took 3/76 in the Scotland first innings.
Both these performances are his best for Ireland.
The following month, he played against India in his only non-first-class match for Ireland. He also played against the Master Control Console in 1936.
He played just once for Ireland in 1937, against the Minor Counties combined side. He played twice in 1938, against Scotland and the Master Control Console, and once in 1939 against Scotland, his last game for Ireland.
