Mark W. O'Rourke[1] (born July 7, 1962 in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island) is a Canadian curler[2] from Cumberland, Prince Edward Island. He currently plays second for Robert Campbell, and formerly played second for Peter Gallant, out of the Charlottetown Curling Club.

O'Rourke has been to the Brier on eight occasions (1991, 1993, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2001 and 2007) but has never won. He played second for Robert Campbell for all of these Briers except 1996 (alternate for Peter MacDonald), 2001 (second for MacDonald) and 2007 (second for Gallant).

Despite the lack of success at the Brier, O'Rourke has been able to win one national championship- in 1989 playing second for Robert Campbell, he won the Canadian Mixed Curling Championship.

He is married to Kathy O'Rourke.
