Denis Joseph Crowley (1948 – 19 February 2016) was an Irish Gaelic footballer who played as a midfielder for the Kerry senior team.[1][2]

Born in Rathmore, County Kerry, Crowley was introduced to Gaelic football in his youth. At club level he lined out with Rathmore, however, it was with divisional side East Kerry that he enjoyed his greatest successes, winning four championship medals.

Crowley made his debut on the inter-county scene when he first linked up with the Kerry senior team during the 1967 championship. He went on to play a key role for Kerry during a hugely successful era, and won two All-Ireland medals, four Munster medals and two National League medals. He was an All-Ireland runner-up on one occasion.

Crowley was a member of the Munster inter-provincial team on a number of occasions but never won a Railway Cup medal. O'Malley retired from inter-county football following the conclusion of the 1972 championship.
