Timothy O'Keeffe (September 27, 1926, Scilly, Kinsale, County Cork - January 11, 1994, London) was an Irish-born editor and publisher. He served as editorial director of the London publishing house MacGibbon & Kee and later formed his own publishing house, Martin, Brian & O'Keeffe.

O'Keeffe was instrumental in the republication of Flann O'Brien's novel At Swim-Two-Birds in 1959 as well as the posthumous publication of O'Brien's The Third Policeman in 1967; had it not been for O'Keeffe's determined efforts, the books would largely be unknown today. The Review of Contemporary Fiction has hailed O'Keeffe as "among the most important publishing editors of the century."[1]
