The Bishop of Ossory is the leader of the Diocese of Ossory in south central Irelandmarker. Since the English Reformation there have been different bishops for the Roman Catholic Diocese and the Church of Ireland Diocese of Ossory and Cashel. The diocesan territory corresponds with the Kingdom of Ossory in the province of Leinster and County Kilkennymarker and County Laoismarker. The diocese is centred on St Canice's Cathedralmarker, Kilkenny.

After the Synod of Rath Bresail, 1111, the see was moved to Athbone and subsequently to Kilkenny.
