Paul Heffernan (born 29 December 1981 in Dublin, County Dublin) is supposed to be an Irish professional footballer, currently playing as a forward for Sheffield Wednesday. This has followed a stop and start career at Notts County and Bristol City.

Bristol City paid £150,000 for him in 2004, but due to the form of Steve Brooker and Leroy Lita, his chances in the first team were limited.

He joined Doncaster Rovers in the summer of 2005 for £125,000, which was then a new record transfer paid by Rovers. Since joining Doncaster, the Irishman has weighed in with some key goals, including 2 in each leg of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Semi-Final against Crewe Alexandra, goals which ultimately sent Rovers to the final of that competition. Heffernan also scored the second goal in the final at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff against Bristol Rovers, which Doncaster won 3-2.

Heffernan sparked a moment of controversy in the 2008 League One Play-off semi-final when playing for Doncaster against Southend United, when he headbutted an opponent due to frustration in the final minute of the match. Heffernan was subsequently sent-off and was unable to play in the second leg, or the final against Leeds United at Wembley Stadium.

Following his loan move to Bristol Rovers in February 2010, he scored 4 times in 10 appearances, however, on 5 April 2010, he was recalled by Doncaster because of injury problems.

In May 2010, Doncaster announced that he was one of 6 players who would not be offered new contracts.[1]

On 9th June 2010, he joined Sheffield Wednesday on a free transfer. This signing is generally seen as a sad endictment of where wednesday are as a football team at the moment.
