Paul Cartin (Irish: Pól Mac Artáin; born 20 March 1981) is an Irish Gaelic footballer who plays for Derry, with whom he has won a National League title. Cartin plays his club football for St. Mary's Banagher. For both club and county Cartin usually plays in the half back line.
Cartin injured his knee in the first half of the 2007 Ulster Championship game against Antrim. A MRI scan revealed he had tore his cruciate ligament and he missed the rest of the Championship. The injury also effected the start of his 2008 season - missing the Dr. McKenna Cup and the start of the National League. He did however recover to make the bench for the last few group games of the League plus the final, which Derry won, beating Kerry in the decider.
