Killian Young (born 4 January 1987 in Renard, County Kerry) is an Irish sportsperson. He plays Gaelic football with his local club Renard, divisional side South Kerry and has been a member of the Kerry senior inter-county team since 2006.
Having appeared for Kerry in the All-Ireland Minor Football Championship and All-Ireland Under-21 Football Championship, Young made his first Kerry senior championship appearance in 2006 and broke onto the team in 2007. He took over the number 7 jersey from Aidan O'Mahony after the latter moved to centre-back to replace Séamus Moynihan. Young played in this position in the National Football League and retained his place for the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship. He was a member of the Kerry team that won the Munster Senior Football Championship and then the overall All-Ireland championship. He also won the Young Player of the Year award. He added another winners medal in 2009 when Kerry once again over came old rivals Cork in the final. In 2010 he was captain of the Kerry team that overcame UCC in the McGrath Cup final.
