Dublin-born, he played one season with Leinster and two with Connacht before a brief three game period with Munster in early 2006.

Downey then went on to Italian side Calvisano for a season before moving to Northampton Saints where he enjoyed five highly successful years.

Returned to Munster on a two-year contract at the start of the 2012/13 season, going on to start in all eight of Munster's Heineken Cup games that year.

Downey was added to the Ireland Squad for the North American tour in June 2013 and made his Irish senior debut against Canada.

Continued where he left off in the 2013/14 season as he started Munster's all six pool games in the Heineken Cup.

Scored his first try for Munster on his 40th appearance against Ospreys towards the end of February.
