The 1952 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final was the 65th All-Ireland Final and the deciding match of the 1952 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, an inter-county Gaelic football tournament for the top teams in Ireland.

Mick Higgins was Cavan's captain on the day.[1]

Cavan equalised with a strange point - Edwin Carolan chased a ball that seemed to go wide, and kicked it across the goalmouth and over the bar. Mick Higgins's five points won the replay for Cavan, while Peter McDermott (Meath) missed an easy goal chance.[2]

Cavan have not appeared in an All-Ireland football final since.[1]
