Thomas Costello (born 1978) is an Irish hurler who played as a right corner-back for the Tipperary senior team.[1]

Born in Cappawhite, County Tipperary, Thomas Costello first arrived on the inter-county scene at the age of seventeen when he first linked up with the Tipperary minor team, before later joining the under-21 side. He made his senior debut during the 2001 league. Costello went on to become a regular member of the team over the next few years, and won one All-Ireland medal, one Munster medal and one National Hurling League medal.
