Brendan Considine (1897–1983) was an Irish hurler, Gaelic footballer, rugby player and boxer who played as a left corner-forward for the Clare, Dublin, Cork and Waterford senior teams. He first played for Clare in 1914 and was a regular inter-county hurler until his retirement in 1930.[1]

Part of the famous Considine family that included his brothers Willie and Tull, Considine is regarded as one of Clare's greatest-ever hurlers. He won two All-Ireland winners' medals, winning his first as a seventeen-year-old in 1914 making him the youngest player ever to win an All-Ireland title. He also won two Munster hurling medals, two Leinster hurling medals and one Leinster football medal.

At club level Considine is a multiple county club championship medalist with Ennis Dalcassians and Collegians.
