Paddy played his early football with Richmond as a ruckman and defender. He later transferred to a key-forward position, where he won two Goalkicking awards in 1966 and 1968. His highest tally of goals was 8 against Collingwood in Round 12 on 1968 and he kicked 5 goals or more five times. He was a solidly built-player whose greatest asset was his strong marking and effective body use. His kicking for goal was not always accurate and this detracted from his game at times. He was a very enthusiastic player whether at training or during a match.
He ran second in the 1962 Best and Fairest award and third in 1965. He was also a member of the 1962 night Premiership side. He was awarded Life Membership in 1967 and was vice captain of the 1967 Premiership team. Paddy represented Victoria twice in 1960. He later served on the Richmond Board of Directors between 1985 and 1987 and again in 1989. After leaving Richmond Paddy played at Dandenong for two years before crossing to the Tony JEWELL – coached Caulfield. He spent four seasons at Caulfield and was a member of their 1973 Premiership side. Paddy also worked as an around-the-ground-man covering football with the then radio station 3DB, during the 1970s. He coached the Richmond Under/19s in 1978 and 1979 and the Reserves in 1980 and 1981. He is a schoolteacher and also has a keen interest in horse racing. He is the son of Dan GUINANE.
