The 1946 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final was the 59th All-Ireland Final and the deciding match of the 1946 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, an inter-county Gaelic football tournament for the top teams in Ireland.

Roscommon had a six-point lead with three minutes left, but Kerry made an amazing comeback with goals by Paddy Burke and Tom "Gega" O Connor. Burke and Gega also scored late goals in the replay.[1]

It was the third of three All-Ireland football titles won by Kerry in the 1940s.[2]
