Samuel Wilfred McDonough (8 October 1899 – 19 May 1983) was an Irish cricketer. McDonough was a right-handed batsman who occasionally fielded as a wicket-keeper. He was born at Armagh, United Kingdom (today Northern Ireland). He was educated at The Royal School, Armagh.[1]

Following success in club cricket for Armagh, McDonough was selected to play in Ireland's first-class match against Scotland in 1930.[2] The Irish batsman struggled in this match against the Scottish fast bowler Arthur Baxter, though opening the batting McDonough himself scored 13 runs in the Irish first-innings before falling victim to Baxter, while in their second-innings he top scored with 48 before Stuart Hiddleston.[3]

Outside of cricket he was employed as a Gas Company Manager, then as a school bursar.[1] He died at Bangor, Northern Ireland on 19 May 1983.
