Michael Joseph McCarthy (born 7 February 1959) is a professional football manager, pundit and former player. Born in Barnsley, England, with an Irish father, he played for the Republic of Ireland on 57 occasions scoring two goals.

McCarthy began his playing career at Barnsley in 1977, and he later had spells at Manchester City, Celtic, Lyon, and finally Millwall, retiring in 1992.

He went on to manage Millwall, and then the Republic of Ireland. He guided Ireland to the knockout stage of the 2002 FIFA World Cup in South Korea and Japan.

He began a second tenure as manager of the Republic of Ireland football team in November 2018, leaving the position in April 2020 in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. He joined Cypriot club APOEL as manager in November 2020. He has also been a television pundit and commentator, including for the BBC and for Virgin Media Television (Ireland).
