Alan McDermott (born 22 January 1982 in Dublin) is a retired Irish footballer who last played with Kildare County in the League of Ireland First Division.

An ex-Manchester United trainee, McDermott joined Hamilton Academicals in March 2003. He went on to have spells with Shelbourne and Newry, before signing for Kildare County towards the end of 2005.

At the beginning of the 2006 season, he had a brief stint with Dundalk, before re-signing for Kildare County to fill a much needed void in the County defence. He held down a steady place with Kildare due to injuries, firstly to Phil Byrne and then to Ian Malone. He scored his first goal for Kildare in a defeat to Finn Harps in Ballybofey in September 2006.

McDermott proved his versatility during the 2007 season. The utility player played in almost every position except in goal. He added to his goal tally with a dramatic equaliser against Shelbourne at Station Road and one against Kilkenny in the same stadium, but the other end. He was released on 25 August 2007.

McDermott has also represented his country at youth level, winning the player of the tournament award in an invitational in Portugal in 2000 for the Under 17's. He has also represented an Eircom League U21's team.
