Johnny Dunne (1905–1954) was an Irish hurler who played as a full-forward for the Kilkenny senior team.

Born in Bennettsbridge, County Kilkenny, Dunne first played competitive hurling in his youth. He arrived on the inter-county scene at the age of twenty-three when he first linked up with the Kilkenny senior team. Dunne went on to play a key part for Kilkenny during a successful era for the team, and won two All-Ireland medals, three Leinster medals and one National Hurling League medal.[1][2] He was an All-Ireland runner-up on one occasion.

As a member of the Leinster inter-provincial team, Dunne won two Railway Cup medals. At club level he won one championship medal with Mooncoin.

Dunne's retirement came following the conclusion of the 1938 championship.
