Mick Kearney (born 29 March 1991) is a rugby union player from Ireland. He currently plays for Irish provincial team Leinster in the Pro 12. His primary position is as a lock, though he has also played as a flanker.
Kearney, who is originally from Dublin and attended Mount Temple Comprehensive School, joined Connacht in 2011. He had previously played for amateur club Clontarf FC and been part of the Leinster youth set-up, from schools to under-19's and Leinster colleges. He made his debut in a home match against Welsh side the Ospreys on 26 November that year, coming off the bench in a 6-17 loss. Kearney made his first senior start for Connacht against his native province Leinster on 1 January 2012, playing at blindside flanker. At the end of his first season with Connacht, Kearney had made 11 Pro 12 appearances for the team, 5 of them starts. He had also played 3 times in the Heineken Cup, coming on as a replacement in both matches against Gloucester and the away match with Toulouse.
Kearney played more often for Connacht in his second season, making 8 starts and 7 replacement appearances in the 2012-13 Pro 12. He also played for the province in 4 of their 6 pool games in the 2013-14 Heineken Cup, starting all but one of his games. He scored his first try for the team in a Pro 12 match away to Edinburgh on 12 April 2013, which Connacht won 24-32.
In April 2015 it was announced that Kearney would return to his native province of Leinster for the 2015/16 season.
Kearney has represented Ireland at under-age levels including playing for the Irish under-20 team. He was part of the squad that went to the 2011 IRB Junior World Championship in Italy. He started each of the group matches against England, South Africa and Scotland in the second row, as well as the first game in the 5–8th place play-offs against South Africa. He was left as a replacement for the final game against Wales, however.
