Born in Eye, Suffolk, O'Keefe joined Ipswich Town's youth setup at the age of nine. Seven years later he moved to Southend United and in his second season at Roots Hall signed his first professional contract. The following week, in November 2008, he made his first team debut as a late substitute in the first round of the FA Cup, with his first experience of the Football League coming two months later in League One.
Hampered by a hernia operation in 2010, O'Keefe played in a total of 13 first team games for Southend before his release that summer. In August 2010 he signed for Crystal Palace, initially in the Championship and then 14 games in the Premier League. In all he made 51 appearances (1 goal) for Palace, and also played four times for Blackpool during a one-month load spell at the end of 2014.
On his return from Bloomfield Road he was released by Palace and later in that January transfer window joined Cardiff City. In the three years before becoming a temporary Pilgrim, O'Keefe played 45 times (2 goals) for the Championship club, and also had loan spells in League One with MK Dons for the second half of the 2016-17 season (18 games, 4 goals) followed by a near full season with Portsmouth (25 games, 2 goals).
Described by a former Cardiff manager as "a hard working, energetic, athletic midfield player", O'Keefe arrived at Home Park on a half-season loan in late August 2018, courtesy of Cardiff and former Argyle manager, Neil Warnock.
