Robert Bayly started at Cherry Orchard and Shelbourne, and gained Republic of Ireland Youth and Under-Eighteen International status, but signed professional forms with Leeds on 3rd March 2006. He was given a two year contract after being handed his debut as substitute against Southend United in the League Cup on 24th October 2006. He got his chance again in the final game of the 2006-07 season at Derby County on 6th May 2007. It was a debut to forget as he was given a red card for trying to headbutt a Derby player. He was given a further two year contract in October 2007, and was also selected for the Irish Under-Nineteen team. However, he was released by the club on 26th August 2008, after having an unsuccessful trial with Darlington. He joined Irish club Sporting Fingal in March 2009 and featured almost permanently in their first team, scoring three times in twenty-six games. He scored the goal that ensured the club's promotion, after beating Bray Wanderers in the play-off, and was a vital member of their FAI Cup winning team, beating Sligo Rovers 2-1 in the Final. It came as a surprise when he left the club at the end of the season, joining Shamrock Rovers January 2010. He scored twice in twenty-five games for the Hoops and won a League Championship medal, but missed their victory in the FAI Cup Final, when they triumphed over Sligo Rovers on penalties, because he was suspended. Bayly played with Shamrock Rovers in the ECL in 2010-11, scoring the first ever goal in European club competition at the Tallaght Stadium in the Rovers tie against Bnei Yehuda Tel Aviv. He was on his travels once more when he moved to Bohemians in February 2011, to 22nd July 2011 he has made seventeen starts and one from the bench.
