Mark Kerins (born 1979) is an Irish hurler who played as a centre-forward for the Galway senior team.

Born in Clarinbridge, County Galway, Kerins first excelled at hurling in his youth. He arrived on the inter-county scene at the age of eighteen when he first linked up with the Galway minor team, before later joining the under-21 side. He joined the senior team for the 1999 championship. Kerins went on to play a bit part for Galway at various times for almost a decade, and won one National Hurling League medal. He was an All-Ireland runner-up on one occasion.

As a member of the Connacht inter-provincial team at various times, Kerins won two Railway Cup medals. At club level he is a one-time All-Ireland medallist with Clarinbridge. In addition to this he also won one Connacht medal and two championship medals.[1]

His retirement came following the conclusion of the 2008 championship.

Kerins's brother, Alan, enjoyed a lengthy career as a dual player with Galway.[2]
