The 1919 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final was the 32nd All-Ireland Final and the deciding match of the 1919 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, an inter-county Gaelic football tournament for the top teams in Ireland.

Kildare won an extremely one-sided final, with goals from Frank "Joyce" Conlan and Jim O'Connor.[1]

This was Galway's first appearance in an All-Ireland football final. They would not win the All-Ireland football title until 1925, having also been beaten in the final of 1922.[2]
