Gino Brazil (born 28 March 1968 in Dublin, Ireland) is a former Irish footballer. He is currently working as a Football In Community Development Officer for the Football Association of Ireland .

A diabetic, Gino played all his schoolboy football with Belvedere and then got an offer to sign for St. Patrick's Athletic F.C. where he spent five months. After a period on the bench he dropped down a division and signed for Home Farm F.C. for two seasons.

After a spell at Finn Harps (3 League Cup appearances) he signed for Shamrock Rovers under Noel King in 1989. He made his Rovers debut against Derry City on Friday the 10th of December 1989. He went to spend thirteen seasons at Rovers where he made 323 competitive appearances scoring twice. In light of the clubs failure to award Gino a well-deserved testimonial Rovers fans organised a testimonial dinner on Sunday the 26th of October 1997.

He played every game in the 1993/94 title winning year scoring once. Gino was Rovers Player of the Year the following season (Shamrock Rovers#Player of the Year Award recipients).

He made 4 appearances for Rovers in European competition.
