Gerry McEntee (born 19 October 1955) was the manager of the 2008 Dublin minor football team[1] and is a retired inter-county Irish Gaelic footballer for County Meath in Ireland. He enjoyed much success playing inter-county football in the Eighties & early Nineties on the Meath teams managed by Sean Boylan, for whom he usually played at midfield. He played club football for Nobber GFC. During his playing career he helped his club to rise from the Junior 'B' grade to the Senior Grade in the Meath Senior Football Championship, and won two Senior All Ireland medals (1987 & 1988) as well as five Leinster Senior Football Championship medals, two National Football League medals and a Centenary Cup Medal. He also captained UCD to a Sigerson title in 1978.

Gerry managed Dublin club St. Brigid's to their first and second Dublin Senior Football Championship in 2003 and again in 2011 as well as their first Leinster Senior Club Football Championship in 2003. He also managed St Brigids Minor Footballers to the Minor and Leinster A titles in 2007, with the team narrowly missing out on winning the 2008 A title after losing the final to Na Finna by a point after a replay.

McEntee is a highly regarded surgeon by profession, practising in Dublin's Mater Hospital and is the brother of the late Fine Gael TD for Meath Shane McEntee.
