Marty Moore (born 1 March 1991) is an Irish rugby union player for Leinster Rugby. His preferred position is tighthead prop. He made his senior debut in September 2012 against the Scarlets.[1]

Former NUIM Barnhall and Castleknock College player Martin Moore has earned glowing praise from his coaches at Leinster and is targeting his first starts in the coming campaign with the Blues having made several appearances off the bench. The prop, who featured at the opening match at the revamped Lansdowne Road in 2010, has represented Leinster and Ireland up through the age grades.

He made six outings with Ireland Under-20 and was a key part in the squad that competed in the 2011 Six Nations. Team-mates in that squad included Tiernan O'Halloran, Jordi Murphy and J. J. Hanrahan.

On 2 February 2014, Moore made his debut for Ireland in the 2014 Six Nations Championship win against Scotland.[2]

On 25 January 2016, Moore signed a deal with English Aviva Premiership side Wasps from the 2016-17 season.[3]
