Joseph "Joe" Bergin (born 1988) is an Irish hurler who plays as a full-forward for the Offaly senior team.[1][2]

Born in Clareen, County Offaly, Bergin first played competitive hurling during his tenure at St. Brendan's Community School in Birr. He arrived on the inter-county scene when he first linked up with the Offaly minor team, before later lining out with the under-21 side. He made his senior debut in the 2006 National Hurling League. Bergin has been a regular fixture on team since that initial appearance, and has won one National Hurling League (Division 2) medal.

Bergin represented the Leinster inter-provincial team at various times throughout his career, winning four Railway Cup medals. At club level he plays with Seir Kieran.

At international level he has won one compromise rules medal as a member of the Ireland hurling-shinty team.
