Eunan Charles O'Kane (born 10 July 1990) is an Irish footballer who plays for Bournemouth in the Premier League.

A midfielder, O'Kane spent two years with Everton as a youth team player before joining Coleraine in September 2009. At Coleraine, O'Kane scored on his professional league debut in a 3–2 loss against Glenavon and in his 10th appearance, O'Kane scored a double in a 3–0 win over Glenavon.

In mid-July, the club accepted a bid from an unknown club in the League One side, which later turns out to be Bournemouth. The move was officially made on 26 July 2012. O'Kane made his debut for the club in a 1–1 draw against Portsmouth on the opening game of the season. His first goal for the Cherries came in an FA Cup game against Carlisle United in a 3–1 win. Twenty-eight later, Kane scored his first league goal, in a 3–0 win over Crawley Town. Then just a few days after scoring his first league goal, Kane scored again in an FA Cup game against Wigan, in a 1–1 draw, which results playing again.

In a 3–1 loss against Walsall on 19 January 2013, O'Kane penalised for handball after picking the ball up because he thought a free-kick had been awarded, which led to a penalty and ended the club's 15-game unbeaten run in League One. After the match, O'Kane made apology on his Twitter account, which Manager Eddie Howe has since forgiven him and commenting the incident, believing it's should not be a penalty; instead, a free-kick. Though the incident, Walsall's assistant manager Richard O'Kelly believes that O'Kane should be short-listed for the FIFA fair play award. O'Kelly would also went on to praise O'Kane for his honesty and sportsmanship. Later in the season, O'Kane would play an important role to help the club promoted to the Championship following a 3–1 win over Carlisle United on 20 April 2013, but finished second place following Doncaster Rovers 1–0 victory over promotion-chaser Brentford.

On 11 March 2014, O'Kane signed a new three-and-a-half year deal with the Cherries.
