Dominic Ryan (born 28 March 1990)[1] is an Irish professional rugby union player for Lansdowne RFC and Leinster Rugby. He is a loose forward, playing primarily at openside flanker.

Ryan made his senior debut for Leinster in the Celtic League in late 2009. He made his first appearance in the Heineken Cup against Saracens in January 2011, scoring two tries. Ryan was selected as part of the Ireland Wolfhounds squad to face Scotland A and England Saxons, his first call-up to senior international duty. In May 2011, he signed a new two-year contract with Leinster.[2]

Ryan had been out of action since October 2011 due to an ankle injury but has since returned to the squad, playing in Leinster's 16-13 last gasp win over Scarlets at the RDS on 17 February 2012 in the RaboDirect PRO12.[3]
