Seamus Donal D'Arcy, known as Jimmy D'Arcy or sometimes Paddy D'Arcy, (14 December 1921 – 22 February 1985) was a Northern Irish international footballer who played as an inside forward. After playing in the Republic of Ireland for Waterford, Limerick, Dundalk and in Northern Ireland for Ballymena United, D'Arcy played professionally in England for Charlton Athletic, Chelsea and Brentford, scoring 15 goals in 49 appearances in the Football League. An ankle injury ended D'Arcy's career in 1954 and the following year he returned to Charlton Athletic to serve as Development Association Officer for eight months.[1]
