John Daly (John Joseph Daly; February 22, 1880 – March 11, 1969) was an Irish athlete who won a silver medal in the 1904 Summer Olympics. When not competing for Ireland as a member of the Gaelic Athletic Association, Daly competed as a member of the Irish American Athletic Club.

He was born in Galway, Ireland and died in New York City.

Daly competed in the 1904 Summer Olympics held in St Louis, United States in the 2590 metre steeple chase where he won the silver medal.
