Ruaidhri returned home and signed for Derry City, making his debut on 14 October in a home game against Drogheda United. He made 4 league appearances before the '04 season drew to a close and made 95 league appearances over the following five years.
At the end of the 2009 season Derry City were expelled from the league following revelations of financial irregularities and in January 2010 Ruaidhri moved south to sign for Pat Fenlon at the reigning league champions Bohemians. He made 22 league appearances over the 2010 season and scored two league goals. Ruaidhri also scored in the 7-1 demolition of Glenville in the FAI CUP third round.
At the end of 2010 Bohemians suffered their own financial issues and in January 2011 Ruaidhri returned to Derry who had just won promotion back to the Premier Division. He made 31 league appearances as Stephen Kenny's side finished third in the top tier.
