Eamonn Campbell (born 29 November 1946) is an Irish musician who has been a member of The Dubliners since 1987. He was also in the Dubliners when they recorded their 25th anniversary show on The Late Late Show hosted by Gay Byrne. He is known as a guitarist and has a rough voice similar to the late Dubliner founding member Ronnie Drew. He is still touring with three other ex-Dubliners as "The Dublin Legends", now that the group name has been retired with the death of Barney McKenna. Eamonn is originally from Drogheda in County Louth, but now lives in Walkinstown, a suburb of Dublin.

In an interview he said "I felt emotional with hate at what this arsehole had got away with. He was abusing the whole class. I still haven't heard anything back."
