Sean Prunty (born 10 July 1980 in Longford) is a former professional footballer who retired due to heart problems in April 2008.

After returning from Middlesbrough he signed for Shamrock Rovers in October 2000 but never played for the first team and soon signed for his home town club. His main position was left back but he also operated on the wing as well as a number of defensive duties. He is the only player to have played in all six senior cup finals that the club have appeared in, and he scored the winner in the 2004 League Cup final at Flancare Park.

Prunty signed for Drogheda United on a three-year full-time contract in 2008 but had to retire almost immediately when a medical check uncovered a previously undetected heart condition.

On 21 November 2008 a testimonial was held for Sean Prunty which featured a clash between Longford Town FC and a Longford Town Legends XI, featuring the likes of Stephen O'Brien, Paul McNally, Wesley Byrne and Graham Gartland. Marco Tardelli and Johan Mjallby made appearances for Longford Town on the night.
