Chris Henry (born 17 October 1984) is an Irish rugby union footballer. He plays for Ulster and Ballymena Rugby Club.

He was educated at the Wallace High School[1] in Lisburn before going to Queen's University Belfast.[citation needed] In November 2009, he was named in Ireland's 39-man squad for the 2009 end of year rugby tests and again in the squad for the 2010 mid-year rugby test series when he received his first cap vs Australia .[2]

In November 2014, Henry suffered a temporary blockage of a small blood vessel in his brain before Ireland were due to play South Africa in the end-of-year international series.[3][4]
