Falvey was a trainee and youth player at English clubs Gillingham and Carlisle United, but began his professional career in 2004 with Cobh Ramblers in the League of Ireland, scoring on his debut vs Athlone Town. He transferred to Kilkenny City prior to the 2007 campaign for a compensation fee because he was under the age of 23, and was made club captain upon arrival. During his time playing in Ireland he attracted interest from Swindon Town, but opted to sign a contract with Otago United in New Zealand under ex-Irish international Terry Phelan, who would become his agent.
