Rúaidhrí Conroy (born 1979) is an Irish actor.

Conroy was born in Dublin, Ireland, the son of actor Brendan Conroy.[1] One of his first castings was as 'Tito' in the film Into the West, for which he won a Young Artist Award in the Outstanding Youth Actors in a Family Foreign Film category.[2] In 1998, Conroy received the Theatre World Award for his performance in Martin McDonagh's play, "The Cripple of Inishmaan".[3]

Conroy also appeared in another McDonagh piece, the film Six Shooter, which won the Academy Award for Live Action Short Film in 2006.[4] Although invited to the 78th Academy Awards, Conroy was unable to attend due to a "passport infringement" on arrival, resulting in his being returned home.[5]
