Michael Heffernan is an Irish sportsperson. He plays hurling with his local club Nenagh Éire Óg and with the Tipperary senior inter-county team.



Heffernan won two All-Ireland Minor Hurling medals in 2006 and 2007. He made his National Hurling League debut as a substitute against Limerick in 2010, scoring a point from play. He went on to make his Championship debut on 3 July 2010 against Wexford in the 2010 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Qualifiers.

On 28 July 2010, Heffernan played at corner forward, scoring 1-3 for Tipperary as they defeated Clare in the 2010 Munster Under-21 Hurling final at Semple Stadium, winning by 1-22 to 1-17.

On 5 September 2010, Heffernan was a non-playing substitute as Tipperary won their 26th All Ireland title, beating reigning champions Killkenny by 4-17 to 1-18 in the final, preventing Kilkenny from achieving an historic 5-in-a-row, it was Heffernan's first All-Ireland winners medal. Six day's later on 11 September 2010, Tipperary clinched the All Ireland Under-21 title by defeating Galway by 5-22 to 0-12 at Semple Stadium, with Heffernan starting at corner forward scoring two points.

In 2012, Heffernan was part of the Tipperary team that won the Munster Intermediate Hurling Championship and the All-Ireland Intermediate Hurling Championship. He started the All-Ireland final at full forward and scored one goal and four points in the 3-13 to 1-17 victory against Kilkenny at Semple Stadium. Heffernan created a piece of history by adding the All-Ireland Intermediate medal (2012) to the Minor (2006, 2007), Under-21 (2010) and Senior (2010) titles that he had already won.
