He was born in Stockport. His squat figure has resulted in the nickname Silverback. His walk-on music is "Hey Baby" by DJ Ötzi. O'Shea has reached the finals of all four of the BDO's former Grand Slam of major darts tournaments, but to date has yet to win one. He is however currently the world number one ranked player in the BDO and WDF rankings.

Two years thereafter he reached the semi-finals after a winning streak defeating Gary Anderson, Gary Robson and Ted Hankey before he eventually went out against Mervyn King 5-1. Later that year he had his best chance to date of winning a major title, as he led King 5-3 in the final of the Winmau World Masters before King recovered to win 6-5. At the 2006 BDO World Championship he reached the quarter-finals. O'Shea managed to achieve a televised nine dart finish against Adrian Lewis during the 2007 International Darts League on 9 May 2007 which made the tournament the first in darts history to witness two perfect games. The occasion was made even sweeter as he was celebrating his 46th birthday. In the 2008 World Championship, O'Shea defeated Steve Farmer in the first round, but was defeated by Winmau World Masters champion Robert Thornton in the second round. O'Shea won the 2008 Welsh Masters, only his second tournament victory. In the 2009 BDO World Championship, O'Shea defeated Anderson in the quarter finals, his best friend Darryl Fitton in the semi final, but was once again second-best in a major final as he lost to Hankey. O'Shea entered the 2009 Winmau World Masters as the number one seed but despite 3-0 wins overs Dave Prins and 8th seed Joey ten Berge, he lost in the semi-finals to defending champion Martin Adams who successfully retained his title. O'Shea then won the WDF World Cup men's singles title with victory over ten Berge in the final, in what was arguably his most significant win to date. O'Shea entered the 2010 BDO World Championship as the number one seed. He had a tough first round against World Masters runner up Robbie Green but came through it 3-2. He then saw off Stephen Bunting 4-0 to reach his 4th Quarter Final. He managed a 5-1 victory over Robert Wagner in the Quarter finals and went on to meet Dave Chisnall in the semi-final who had beaten Fitton in the first round, former Masters champion Tony West in the second round, and defending champion Hankey in the quarter-final. O'Shea, despite taking the first two sets, was beaten 6-3 by Chisnall and saw his World Championship dream end for another year. Martin Adams went on to defeat Chisnall in the final. In a recent interview, O'Shea expressed his interest in switching to the PDC.[2] World Championship results 2002: First round (lost to Colin Monk 2-3) 2003: Second round (lost to Colin Monk 2-3) 2004: Semi Final (lost to Mervyn King 1-5) 2005: First round (lost to Marko Kantele 1-3) 2006: Quarter Final (lost to Raymond van Barneveld 3-5) 2007: First Round (lost to Martin Adams 0-3) 2008: Second round (lost to Robert Thornton 2-4) 2009: Runner Up (lost to Ted Hankey 7-6) 2010: Semi Final (lost to Dave Chisnall 6-3) His total prize money to date is £652,000.
