Alan Mahon (born 18 November 1978 in Dublin, Republic of Ireland) is an Irish footballer whose last club was UCD. He should not be confused with his namesake, five months his senior.

Alan's father Pete Mahon was manager of UCD but unusually for such a situation Alan's arrival at UCD preceded his father by some 6 years. Alan joined UCD from St. Francis in 1997 and made his league debut away to Waterford United on the opening day of the 1998/99 season.

He is UCD's second longest serving player. He is third on the all-time list of league appearances for UCD. Although he scored once in the cup for UCD, Mahon had not scored a league goal after spending a decade with the club. However, Alan finally scored his first league goal in his 241st league appearance in a 3-1 defeat to Drogheda United at the Belfield Bowl . He followed up with his second ever league goal the following month .
