Ambrose "Amby" Gerald Fogarty (born 11 September 1933 in Dublin) is an Irish former professional football player.

He played at club level for Bohemians, Glentoran, Sunderland, Hartlepool United, Cork Celtic and Cork Hibernian.

At Roker Park he scored on his home debut against Chelsea F.C. and played alongside Charlie Hurley and Brian Clough.

In 1964 he became the first Hartlepool player to make an international appearance when he won the last of his 11 caps for the Republic of Ireland national football team against Spain.[1]

His full international debut for Ireland was on 11 May 1960 when he played in a 1-0 friendly win over West Germany in Düsseldorf.[2]

Fogarty signed as player/manager of Drumcondra F.C. in March 1971.[3]

After his football career ended, he was manager of Cork Hibernians, Cork Celtic, Drumcondra, Limerick, and Athlone Town who he managed in a famous 0-0 draw against A.C. Milan in the 1975–76 UEFA Cup.[4] He was the first manager of Galway Rovers in 1977.
