Mal McEvoy scored an early goal for Armagh, who led by two points after 40 minutes, before Kerry began to pile on the points. Armagh's Bill McCorry missed a penalty and Kerry won by four points.[1]

It was the first of three All-Ireland football titles won by Kerry in the 1950s.[2]

This was also the first Championship meeting of Armagh and Kerry.[3]
