Ambrose 'Amby' Power (1887 – 26 February 1960) was an Irish hurler who played as a centre-back for the Clare senior team.[1]

Power made his first appearance for the team around 1908 and became a regular player over the next decade. During that time he won one All-Ireland winner's medal and one Leinster winner's medal. In 1914 Power became the first Clareman to captain his county to the All-Ireland title.[2][3]

At club level, Power played with Tulla and Carrahan and won two county championship winners' medals in a career that spanned the first two decades of the 20th century.
