Rory O'Tunny ("fl. c." 1541 – 1542) was an Irish sculptor.

Born into a family of sculptors, said to have originated in Callan, O'Tunney was primarily a sculptor of tombs. Among his more prominent works are three tombs in Kilcooley Abbey, the resting place of Sir John Grace and his wife, Honora Brenach, at Grace's Chapel, Tullaroan, Co. Kilkenny, and the tombs of Robert Walsh and his wife, Katherine Poer, at Jerpoint Abbey. [Strickland, Henry G. A Dictionary of Irish Artists. Maunsel & Company, Limited, Dublin and London. 1913.]
