The 1918 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final was the 31st All-Ireland Final and the deciding match of the 1918 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, an inter-county Gaelic football tournament for the top teams in Ireland.

Tipperary's preparations were severely hampered by military regulations following the Soloheadbeg ambush, not to mention the death of Davey Tobin by Spanish flu. A disallowed goal and a last-minute miss by Gus McCarthy were enough to allow Wexford to complete a four-in-a-row.[1]

It was the fourth of four All-Ireland football titles won by Wexford in the 1910s.[2] They haven't appeared in an All-Ireland football final since.
