The 1888 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship was unfinished owing to the American Invasion Tour, an unsuccessful attempt to raise funds for a revival of the Tailteann Games.[1]

The 1888 provincial championships had been completed (Tipperary, Kilkenny and Monaghan winning them; no Connacht teams entered) but after the Invasion tour returned, the All-Ireland semi-final and final were not played.[2]
