Anthony Paul "Tony" McCarthy (born 9 November 1969 in Dublin) is a retired Irish footballer who is currently the physiotherapist at Shamrock Rovers [1].

Tony started his League of Ireland career with University College Dublin in 1988. During his last season at Belfield Park he was capped by the Republic of Ireland U21 in April 1990 at Oriel Park.

After two seasons, he transferred to Derry City where he gained two further U21 caps. After just one season at the Brandywell he signed for Shelbourne. His one season at Tolka Park was a huge success as Shels won the League of Ireland [2], Tony was named PFAI Young Player of the Year.[1] and a further two U21 caps came his way.

After five years in England he returned to Shels where he went on to win further major honours. During this time he conceded two penalties against Rangers in the UEFA Cup in 1998 [3].
