Gleeson made his debut on the inter-county scene at the age of sixteen when he was selected for the Waterford minor team. He enjoyed two championship seasons with the minor team, culminating with the winning of an All-Ireland medal in 2013. Gleeson subsequently joined the Waterford under-21 team, winning an All-Ireland medal in 2016. By this stage he had also joined the Waterford senior team, making his debut during the 2014 league.
