Niamh Fahey (born 13 October 1987) is an Irish footballer who plays as a defender or midfielder for English FA WSL team Chelsea Ladies and the Republic of Ireland women's national football team. Before joining Chelsea in December 2014, Fahey spent six seasons with Arsenal Ladies. She has also won national cups playing Gaelic football with Galway Ladies Football. Niamh is the sister of Galway's 2001 All-Ireland-winning Gaelic football captain Gary Fahey.
Fahey began her career with her hometown club, Salthill Devon. She progressed through the ranks alongside future international team mate Méabh De Búrca. Both players helped Galway win the FAI Women's Cup in 2007. In the final against Raheny United, Fahey scored the winning penalty and also subdued the attacking threat of Raheny's Olivia O'Toole, in what RTÉ described as "a splendid individual display."
She joined Arsenal Ladies in August 2008. In her first season with the Gunners Fahey made 18 appearances, mostly at left full–back, as the club won a domestic treble.
On December 19, 2014, Fahey signed for Chelsea L.F.C.
Fahey has won over 25 caps for Republic of Ireland, having previously represented her country at Under–17 and Under–19 level.
In March 2007, Fahey made her senior debut for Ireland in a 1–1 draw with Portugal in the opening match of the Algarve Cup. After becoming a regular in the team, Fahey was named FAI Women's Senior International Player of the Year in 2008, 2009 and 2011.
In April 2013 Fahey suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury while playing for Arsenal. The 30 minutes she played for Ireland against the Basque Country in May 2014 was her first game back.FA WSL: 3
