Stephen Geoghegan (born June 30, 1970 in Dublin) is a former Irish football player and current manager of O'Devaney Dunard FC.

His first league club was Drogheda United where he won two League of Ireland First Division titles and 1 League of Ireland First Division Shield. After a spell of non league football Ray Treacy brought him back to the league when in 1992 he signed for Shamrock Rovers. The following season he helped the Hoops win the League of Ireland title in 1993 94 where he was top league goalscorer with 23 league goals. These goals earned him both PFAI Player of the Year and the FAI National League Player of the Year

He scored a total of 34 goals in 64 appearances for Rovers before signing for Shelbourne just after the 1994 League success. He stayed with Shels until the end of the 2003 season.

During Geoghegan's time with Shels, he finished top scorer in the League in the 1995 96, 1996 97 and 1997 98 seasons.

He scored the winning goal in the 1996 FAI Cup Final replay at Dalymount Park against St Patrick's Athletic to deny them the league and cup 'double' and scored the second goal in the following year's final as Shels beat Derry City 2 0 to deny them the 'double'.

In 1999 2000, Geoghegan's goals helped Shels win the League and FAI Cup double for the first time in the club's history. Further league titles would be won in the 2001 02 and 2003 season with Shels. He also had a spell at Dundalk late in his career.

Geoghegan was also twice called up for the Republic of Ireland senior national team squad, but was never capped.

He is the brother of fellow footballer Declan Geoghegan.
