Don Davis (born 1969) is an Irish retired Gaelic footballer who played as a full-forward for the Cork senior team.

Born in Skibbereen, County Cork, Davis first played competitive Gaelic football whilst at school at St. Fachtna's De La Salle Secondary School. He arrived on the inter-county scene at the age of seventeen when he first linked up with the Cork minor team, before later lining out with the under-21 side. He made his senior debut in the 1993 championship. Davis went on to play a key role for the team over the next seven years, winning four Munster medals and one National Football League medal. He was an All-Ireland runner-up on two occasions.

Davis was a member of the Munster inter-provincial team on one occasion, however, he ended his career without a Railway Cup medal. At club level he is an All-Ireland medallist with O'Donovan Rossa. He has also won one Munster and one championship medal.

His brother Tony was a two-time All-Ireland medallist with Cork.

Throughout his career Davis made 23 championship appearances for Cork. He retired from inter-county football following the conclusion of the 2000 championship.

Davis is widely regarded as one of Cork's greatest-ever Gaelic footballers. He has often been voted onto teams made up of the sport's greats, including at centre-forward on a special Cork team made up of players never to have won an All-Ireland medal.

In retirement from play Davis has become involved in coaching and team management. In 2013 he was named as a selector as part of Brian Cuthbert's management team for the Cork senior footballers.
