Conor McKenna (born 28 March 1996) is an Australian rules footballer playing for the Essendon Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL).
McKenna was born in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, and grew up in the village of Eglish near Dungannon. There he played Gaelic football for the Tyrone minors. In 2012, McKenna played a starring role in Tyrone's run to the All-Ireland Minor Football Championship quarter-final.
In December 2013, the then 18-year-old McKenna attracted interest from several AFL clubs when he was spotted at a talent combine in Ireland. Ten months later, on 3 October 2014, Essendon secured McKenna to a two-year deal as a Category B rookie. McKenna made his AFL debut against Richmond at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in round 22, 2015, and kicked a goal with his first kick. McKenna re-signed with Essendon at the end of 2017 with a new four-year contract.
