Tommy O'Day (usually O'Dea during his playing career; 8 October 1873 – 2 September 1905) was an Australian rules footballer who played for North Melbourne in the Victorian Football Association (VFA), then for the Imperials (a forerunner of East Fremantle) in the West Australian Football Association (WAFA), and then for Carlton in the breakaway Victorian Football League (VFL).

O'Day made his debut for the Carlton Football Club in Round 1 of the 1898 season. He was only with the Blues for the single season, playing 13 games and kicking 8 goals. The 8 goals he kicked made him the leading goal-kicker for that year, the lowest leading goal tally in the history of the club.
