Born in Borris-in-Ossory, County Laois, Whelan first played competitive hurling during his tenure at St. Fergal's College in Rathdowney. He arrived on the inter-county scene when he first linked up with the Laois minor hurling and football teams, before later lining out with the under-21 hurling side. He made his senior debut in the 2007 National Hurling League. Whelan has been a regular fixture on team since that initial appearance, and has won one National Hurling League (Division 2) medal and one National Hurling League (Division 2A) medal.
At club level Whelan is a one-time intermediate championship medallist with Borris-in-Ossory.
