Seán Moore (19 May 1913 – 1 October 1986) was an Irish Fianna Fáil politician.

Seán Moore was born in Dublinmarker in 1913 and grew up in Irishtown, Dublin. He was educated at the Vocational School in Ringsend and University College Dublinmarker where he received a diploma in Social and Economic Science. He worked as an official with the Alliance and Dublin Consumers' Gas Company before becoming involved in politics. Moore first became involved in politics in 1950 when he was elected as a councillor on Dublin City Council, a post he would hold until 1979. Moore was first elected to Dáil Éireann as a Fianna Fáil Teachta Dála on his third attempt at the 1965 general election, representing Dublin South East in the 18th Dáil.

In 1979 Charles Haughey came to power and Moore became Government Chief Whip. His health declined during this period, so much so that the Assistant Chief Whip, Bertie Ahern, was doing most of Moore's work. He served in that position until Fianna Fáil lost power at the 1981 election and remained in the Dáil until he lost his seat in the February 1982 general election. He fought one further general election in November 1982 but failed to be elected, and subsequently retired from politics.

Sean Moore Road and Sean Moore Park near Irishtownmarker is named after him.
