Dermot Earley, Junior (born 7 July 1978) is a Gaelic football player, who played inter-county football for Kildare and club football with Sarsfields Newbridge. He is the son of former Roscommon footballer and former Kildare manager the late Dermot Earley, brother of Kildare footballer David Earley and nephew of Roscommon footballer Paul Earley.[1]

Earley was a regular player for Kildare at midfield position for more than 15 years and his performances won him All Star Awards in 1998 and 2009. He reached the 1998 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final with Kildare, and won Leinster medals in 1998 and again in 2000 after the replay against neighbours Dublin.

He retired from inter-county football in 2013.[2]

In January 2017, Earley was named as the new chief executive of the Gaelic Players Association, replacing Dessie Farrell who stepped down in December 2016.[3][4][5]
