Injury has forced the 32-year-old into early retirement, after suffering from knee and hip problems likely sustained in what was his final appearance in football for Shamrock Rovers against St Patrick’s Athletic on 29 May.
Fahey played almost 150 games in all competitions for Blues after joining from St Pats in January 2009, including starting the 2011 Carling Cup final victory over Arsenal.
He came close to scoring only to hit the post at Wembley that day, but bagged nine goals in his St Andrew’s career.
The former Republic of Ireland international played a key part in Blues’ promotion to the Premier League in his inugural season at the club, and scored the opening goal in the vital 2-1 win at Reading on the final day of the 2008/09 campaign.
He left Birmingham in 2013 before returning to Ireland with former club St Pats and most recently Shamrock Rovers.
