1888 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship
|Winning team||n/a ( win)|
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.
10 June 1888
|Kilkenny||1–3 – 0–0||Queen's County|
Referee: GF Moore
Wicklow used illegal players, and the game was stopped by a pitch invasion with ten minutes to go, so a replay was ordered.
19 August 1888
|Wexford||1–3 – 0–2||Wicklow|
Referee: JP Cox
Limerick were awarded the game due to Clare playing illegal players.
Neither team could field the full 21 players, so 15-a-side was agreed.
