Robert Richard Irons (born November 19, 1946) is a former National Hockey League and International Hockey League goaltender. He was born in Toronto, Ontario. He played in three minutes of the November 13, 1968 game with the St. Louis Blues. This occurred only because the Blues' starting goaltender, Glenn Hall, was ejected from the game before his replacement, Jacques Plante, was prepared to enter. Irons tended the net until Plante was able to take over.

Irons played 11 seasons in the IHL with the Fort Wayne Komets, earning six selections to the All-Star team. His jersey number 30 is retired by the team.
