Bernard Toohey (born 18 February 1963) is a former Australian rules footballer who played during the 1980s and early 1990s as a defender.

Toohey started his career in 1981 with the Geelong Football Club, with whom he played for five years. He then moved north to Sydney and earned All Australian selection in 1987. Two years later, he topped the Swans' goal kicking charts courtesy of spending half of the season at full forward.

A. Edward "Ted" Toohey is a former professional rugby league footballer of the 1940s and '50s, and coach of the 1970s who at representative level has played for Great Britain, and England, and at club level for Wigan, and Barrow, playing at Scrum-half/Halfback, i.e. number 7, and at club level has coached for Wigan.

James 'Jim' Toohey (born July 23, 1886) was a Australian rules footballer who played with Fitzroy in the Victorian Football League (VFL). After appearing in the opening two rounds of the 1913 season, Toohey left the club to coach Stawell. He returned in round seven and was a half forward flanker in Fitzroy's premiership team that year. In 1914 he kicked 38 goals, seven of them against a weak University team in the middle of the season. His career best tally was the fifth highest in the league that year. He also played in their losing 1917 VFL Grand Final side, as a centre half back.One of his sons, also called Jim, played at Fitzroy during the 1930s, while a younger son named Jack was a league footballer at Fitzroy and St Kilda.

Peter Michael Toohey (born 20 April 1954, Blayney, New South Wales) is a former Australian cricketer who played in 15 Tests and 5 ODIs from 1977 to 1979. Toohey was one of the cricketers who came to the fore when the bulk of Australia's top cricketers defected to Kerry Packer's World Series Cricket. During that defection period, Toohey was probably the mainstay of the Australian batting lineup, along with Graham Yallop and Graeme Wood. During his prime playing years in the Australian Test team, some media commentators referred to Toohey as "Australia's master batsman", such was Toohey's pivotal role in the Australian Test team during the absence of the defecting World Series players. When the World Series cricketers returned to mainstream Test cricket to reclaim their places in the Australian Test team, most of those players, who had sustained Australian cricket during the World Series Cricket years, were unable to retain their places in the Test side. Among those who did retain their places were Toohey and Graeme Wood.Toohey thereafter lost his place in the Australian Test team after a series of poor performances. Some commentator's believed that his batting stance was too rigid, in the sense that he tended to lock his knees back, which hindered his mobility.
