Biography

Heeney was the fourth player to be announced as part of Tim Clancy’s 2021 Premier Division squad.

The Bellewstown native first joined the club ahead of the 2019 season from St. Patrick’s Athletic and went on to make 30 appearances in his first year in senior football.

Heeney re-signed for his local side in 2020, and despite missing part of the season through injury, the midfielder returned to play a vital part in the run in.

The 21-year-old finished the season with 9 appearances and scored Drogheda’s second goal against Cabinteely on the final day of the season, heading in from close range to seal the league win and promotion back to the Premier Division.

“Playing for my local side in the Premier is something I’m really looking forward to.”
