Playing career[edit]

The St Loman's GAA [2] clubman represented University College Dublin in the Sigerson Cup and Westmeath GAA at all level's and starred as Westmeath reached the Leinster Under-21 Football Championship final. He also played in 2 games of the 2011 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship and since then has been a permanent fixture in the Westmeath team.

Australian football[edit]

Richmond Football Club[edit]

Heslin joined the Tigers as a rookie in the 2012 Pre-season Draft.[3][4][5][6] After only three months on the Tigers' rookie list, homesickness proved too much for the St. Loman's clubman, and he resumed his inter-county career with Westmeath.[7]
