Carmody was member of Collingwood's back-to-back premierships in 1935 and 1936. He was used mostly on the wing and during the late 1930s often found himself on the sidelines due to the strength of the Collingwood side. As a result, he crossed to Hawthorn in 1940 where he played some games up forward and captained the club in 1942.
