Eamon Martin Dunphy (born 3 August 1945 in Dublin, Irish: Éamonn Máirtín Ó Donnchaidh) is an Irish media personality, radio and television presenter, author, sports pundit, as well as a former professional football player. He is best known as a soccer analyst on RTÉ's coverage of the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League. He has been impersonated and lampooned by several Irish comedy shows including Scrap Saturday and Après Match.

Dunphy has worked for several radio and television stations, including TV3 (for which he has presented a chat show and a game show) and he was the original presenter of The Last Word on Today FM. Between 2004 and 2006, Dunphy presented the breakfast programme on Dublin's local Newstalk 106 radio station (now a national broadcaster). Later he moved to RTÉ Radio 1, where he presented a weekly programme, Conversations with Eamon Dunphy. This ended in mid 2009. He continues to write a column on football for the Irish Daily Star newspaper.
