Mark O'Meley (born 22 May 1981 in West Wyalong, New South Wales) is an Australian professional rugby league footballer for the European Super League team, Hull, and previously of the Sydney Roosters in the National Rugby League (NRL) competition. He also previously played for the North Sydney Bears, the ill fated Northern Eagles and the Bulldogs. O'Meley's position of choice is at prop-forward. O'Meley played with the Northern Lakes Warriors (previously Munmorah Maulers) on the New South Wales' Central Coast.

O'Meley is a member of the Bulldogs' 2004 Premiership winning team in their 16–13 win over the Sydney Roosters.

O'Meley was first selected to represent New South Wales as a front-rower for game II of the 2001 State of Origin series. He has also represented in the 2002, 2004 and 2006 Origin series.
