Tommy Fitzgerald (born 2 January 1970 in Dublin) was an Irish soccer player during the 1990s.

Tommy was brought up in the School Street area of South Dublin and served his time in schoolboy football with the likes of OLV and Lourdes Celtic before going cross-channel to join Tottenham Hotspur at the age of 16 as a trainee.

Tommy played in a strong youth team at Spurs alongside the likes of Guy Butters and was a regular in their reserves but couldn't make the breakthrough to the first team and was released after 2 seasons in London.

Fitzgerald decided to return home despite an offer from David Webb's Southend United and he signed for Shelbourne. He made his debut for Shels on 3 September 1989. He was in and out of the starting line up during his time at Tolka Park and went on loan to Waterford United and then Limerick City in his second season at Shels.

He impressed while on loan at Limerick and signed for them in time for the 1991/92 season. He made 23 appearances in the league that season scoring 12 times as Limerick won the First Division Title under the management of Sam Allardyce. This form impressed Eamonn Gregg who signed him for Bohemians in the summer of 1992.
