John Deighan (Irish: Seán Ó Duígeannáin; born 19 December 1982) is an Irish Gaelic footballer who plays for Derry, with whom he has won a National League title. He plays his club football for Limavady Wolfhounds GAC. He plays as goalkeeper for Derry.



Deighan was called up to the Derry Senior panel in 2008. He helped Derry reach the 2008 Dr. McKenna Cup final, where they were defeated by Down. He was part of the Derry panel that won the that year's National League where Derry beat Kerry in the final. The league success saw Derry become favourites to win the Ulster Championship and one of the top few for the All-Ireland. However, despite a good opening victory over Donegal, Derry exited the Ulster Championship against Fermanagh at the semi-final stage and were defeated by Monaghan in the first round of the Qualifiers. The Donegal match saw Deighan make his Championship debut. He missed the Fermanagh game through injury, but returned for the Monaghan match.
