Séamus Hearne (1932 - 7 November 2008) was an Irish hurler who played as a midfielder for the Wexford senior team.[1][2]

Born in Curracloe, County Wexford, Hearne first excelled at hurling in his youth. He arrived on the inter-county scene at the age of seventeen when he first linked up with the Wexford minor team. He joined the senior panel during the 1951 championship. Hearne later became a regular member of the starting fifteen, and won two All-Ireland medals, three Leinster medals and two National League medals on the field of play. He was an All-Ireland runner-up on one occasion.

As a member of the Leinster inter-provincial team on a number of occasions, Hearne won one Railway Cup medal. At club level he played with Ardcolm, Shelmaliers, Midleton and Blackrock, winning one championship medal.

Throughout his career Hearne made 16 championship appearances. He retired from inter-county hurling following the conclusion of the 1959 championship.
