Donnacha Cody (born 24 December 1985) is an Irish hurler who played as a corner-back for the Kilkenny senior team.

Born in Kilkenny, Cody first played competitive hurling during his schooling at St. Kieran's College. He arrived on the inter-county scene at the age of seventeen when he first linked up with the Kilkenny minor team. He made his senior debut during the 2006 championship.[1][2] Cody found it difficult to break into the starting fifteen, and won two Leinster medals.

At club level Cody is a one-time All-Ireland medallist with James Stephens. In addition to this he has also won two Leinster medals and three championship medals.

Cody's father, Brian, won several All-Ireland medals between 1973 and 1986, before later managing the team to ten All-Ireland titles, while his mother, Elsie, played camogie with Wexford.

Throughout his career Cody made 3 championship appearances. He retired from inter-county hurling following the conclusion of the 2008 championship.
