The 1945 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final was the 58th All-Ireland Final and the deciding match of the 1945 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, an inter-county Gaelic football tournament for the top teams in Ireland.

Cork took their first title in 34 years with a four-point victory; their goals were scored by Mick Tubridy and Derry Beckett. This game gave dual star and future Taoiseach Jack Lynch the fifth of his six All-Irelands in a row (he won hurling medals in 1941, '42, '43, '44 and '46).[1]
