Dave Barry (born 16 September 1961 in Cork, Ireland) is an Irish former sportsperson.

He played Gaelic football with his local club St. Finbarr's and soccer for Tramore Athletic and was a member of the Cork senior inter-county team from 1980 until 1991.[1] Barry also played football with and managed Cork City making his League of Ireland debut in Cork's first ever League game on the 16th of September 1984. As a player, he won a league title, several national cups and played in numerous European ties for the club. When in charge, he won City's second FAI Cup and the side were also at the top end of the League of Ireland table under his stewardship. Perhaps his most famous moment is scoring the goal that put Cork City 1–0 up against giants Bayern Munich at Musgrave Park in the 1991–92 UEFA Cup.[2] He also scored against Galatasaray S.K. (football team) at the Ali Sami Yen Stadium in the 1993–94 UEFA Champions League first round.[3]

His FAI Cup triumph in 1998 carried on a family tradition as his grandfather Bobby Buckle won it in 1934 with Cork F.C. and his father had won it with Fordsons in 1926.
