He made his senior Ulster debut against Harlequins in August 2010 and rejoined the province last summer from Doncaster Knights where he spent a successful six months playing in the English Championship.

Heaney has played eight times for Mark Anscombe’s senior side so far this season.

He was a member of the Ireland Under-20 squad that won the 2010 Six Nations Championship and also competed in the IRB Junior World Championships later that year.
