The late Frank Heavey, Ballinamore Sean O Heslins and New York

Frank Heavey, one of the greatest footballers to don the Ballinamore Sean O’Heslin’s jersey has died suddenly in New York. Frank played senior football for Leitrim in the early 1980’s and would have been on the team for longer only for emigrating to America during the lean years of the mid 1980s. Frank won three senior football championships with the Ballinamore club. His first was in 1982 and he captained the winning side in 1986. He was in America in 1988 and missed their successful run in the championship but was back playing at centre half forward when they won the final in 1990. He was an outstanding full forward and a gentleman both on the field and off. We extend our deepest sympathies to the Heavey family on their sad loss.
