James Birrell "Jimmy" Mackay (born in Scotlandmarker, 19 December, 1943 – died 11 December, 1998) is a former football player. He was a member of the Australian 1974 World Cup squad in West Germanymarker.

In late 1973, he scored the decisive goal against South Korea which sent Australia to its first ever World Cup. Socceroos defender Doug Utjesenovic described the goal emphatically, "that was one of the freakiest goals. You could try a million times to score the exact goal (and never do it). There was a free kick, the ball was knocked back and he ran onto the ball. It was a real thunderbolt."

Mackay died of a heart attack in 1998.
