Donal Shine (born 28 February 1989) is a Gaelic footballer from County Roscommon.


Shine went to secondary school in Athlone Community College. He plays with the Roscommon senior football team and the Clann na nGael club. He was the star of the Roscommon team that beat Kerry in the 2006 All-Ireland Minor Football Championship final. In 2010 he was part of the DCU team that won the 2010 O'Byrne Cup beating Louth in the final and the Sigerson Cup beating UCC. He continued his winning ways in 2010 by helping Roscommon to a Connacht Under-21 Football Championship after a 1-06 to 0-04 won over Sligo. Later in the year he once again starred in a provincial final with Sligo as he scored 10 points in Roscommon's 0-14 to 0-13-point Connacht Senior Football Championship win. His father is former Roscommon manager Donie Shine.

He recently picked up his first senior County medal with Clann na nGael, scoring 1-3 in the final against Padraig Pearses.
