Killian Young (born 4th January 1987 in Tralee) is an Irish sportsperson. He plays Gaelic football with his local club Renard GAA, contests the County Championship with divisional side South Kerry, and has been a member of the Kerry senior inter-county team since 2006.

Having appeared for Kerry in the All-Ireland Minor Football Championship and All-Ireland Under-21 Football Championship, Young made his Kerry senior championship debut in 2006, breaking into the team in 2007. He filled the number 7 jersey when Aidan O'Mahony moved to centre-back to replace Séamus Moynihan. Young played there in the National Football League and retained his place for the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship. He was a member of the Kerry team that won Munster and then the All-Ireland that year, and won Young Player of the Year. He captained Kerry to the 2008 All-Ireland Under-21 Football Championship.[1] He won another senior All-Ireland in 2009 when Kerry overcame old rivals Cork in the final. In 2010, he captained Kerry to the McGrath Cup, overcoming UCC in the final.
