Danny O'Connor (born September 28, 1980 in Dublin) is an Irish footballer player currently playing for Bray Wanderers. O'Connor primarily plays as a central defender and can play in central midfield. His brother James O'Connor plays for Sheffield Wednesday.

O'Connor began his senior career at Bray Wanderers but his most notable spell came during his time with Drogheda United. On 8 February 2003 he scored the winning goal in the relegation playoff against Galway United to keep Drogheda in the top division. His extra time goal at United Park was Drogheda's third of the match, which overturned the 2-0 defeat they had suffered in the first leg.

He then moved to Longford Town where he had a very successful few seasons winning an FAI Cup and League Cup in 2004. He scored a wonder goal in an amazing comeback against Cork City in the First Round of the FAI Cup in 2006. Longford would later bow out in the Quarter Finals against St Pats, on a scoreline of 4-1.

O'Connor departed Longford Town at the end of the 2006 season to join newly promoted Shamrock Rovers.He made his Rovers debut at UCD on the opening day of the 2007 season. O'Connor scored his first Rovers goal in a 2-0 derby win. He departed Shamrock Rovers at the end of the 2008 season and following a brief spell out of the game he joined IFA Premiership side Newry City for the 2009/10 season.

O'Connor returned to Bray Wanderers in July 2010.
