Conor Kenna, born in Dublin on 21 August 1984, is a footballer for League of Ireland side St. Patrick's Athletic.

Kenna began his League of Ireland career with Shelbourne where he was a primary figure in the Reds' under 21 squad and was briefly part of their first team squad. He left Shels prior to the start of 2004 season to join First Division UCD for whom he helped to promotion to the Premier Division with a 2nd place finish. His primary role is at centre back although he deputised on many occasions at left back for UCD in spite of being right footed. Kenna formed a highly successful partnership at centre back with Alan McNally in a defence that gave up the fourth fewest goals in the 2006 eL Premier Division. Kenna was called into an Irish U-21 squad in 2005 but had to withdraw through injury. He was appointed UCD captain in the 2008 pre-season to replace the retired Tony McDonnell. He scored his first competitive goal for UCD in a 3-2 defeat to Derry City on the 7th of March 2008.

Has earned 3 U23 caps for Republic of Ireland national football team.

Following UCD's relegation to the First Division at the end of the 2008 season, Kenna signed for Drogheda United in February 2009. Kenna made 38 competitive appearances and scored 5 goals for Drogheda in 2009 as the Louth club retained their Premier Division status.

Kenna signed for St. Patrick's Athletic on 9 February 2010, linking up at the Inchicore club with his former UCD manager Pete Mahon.

Kenna has become a fan's favourite in Inchicore and has been one of St. Patrick's Athletic's top performers so far in 2010
