John Frederick Byrne was an Irish international footballer in the 1980s and 1990s.

He began his career with York City and came to the attention of QPR during the League Cup match between the sides in 1984. He joined QPR in October 1984, making his debut against Norwich City.

He was a highly skillful player and once famously dribbled half the length of the pitch to score against Chelsea in a 6-0 victory in 1986. Shortly afterwards John played at Wembley in the Milk Cup Final against Oxford United but ended up on the losing side.

John moved to Le Havre in France in 1988 and returned to England playing for many clubs including Sunderland who he scored for in every round of the 1992 FA Cup except the final, where he ended up on the losing side. He later played for Millwall, Brighton and Oxford, retiring in 1996.

John earned 23 caps for the Republic of Ireland, and was in their squads for Euro 88 and the 1990 World Cup. His best day in a green shirt came when he scored two fine goals in their 3-1 win over Turkey in Izmir in the qualifiers for Euro 92.
