Dessie Byrne (born in Dublin, 10 April 1981) is an Irish footballer currently playing for St. Neots Town FC.
Dessie Byrne is a left back but has also appeared at central defence and midfield.
He began his career at Stockport County making his debut in the 1998–99 season. He returned to Ireland where he joined St Patrick's Athletic and put in many fine performances. Wimbledon splashed out to take him back to England but he never established himself at the club, making just one appearance as a late substitute against Barnsley. While at Wimbledon, he found himself in the news when involved in an incident at a West London nightclub with Chelsea's Jody Morris and John Terry. He was found guilty of possessing an offensive weapon and fined £2,000. He was also ordered to pay costs of £1,000. He had spells at Cambridge United on loan and Carlisle United before once again returning to St Patrick's Athletic.
Currently living in London since 2009, Byrne has recently set up a football agency Clique Sports Management with James Park.
