Ryan Casey (born 3 January 1979) is a retired Irish footballer and he played as left back. Ryan was appointed as the FAI Development Officer for Sligo in July 2007.[1]

Casey began his career with Swansea City having signed as a 17 year old.

He has also played for St Patrick's Athletic, Cork City, Galway United, Athlone Town and Longford Town.

Casey was part of the so-called "golden generation" of Republic of Ireland youth football of the late 1990s. Under the guidance of Brian Kerr, the unfancied Republic won the UEFA U-16 and U-18 European championships in 1998, and Ryan was part of the victorious U-18 side in Cyprus.[2] In 1999, he played at the World Youth Cup in Nigeria, where the Republic reached the last 16 before going out on penalties to the hosts.
