The 1964 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship was played from May to September, 1964. It was Galway's second final in a row, having lost to Dublin in the previous year's decider. This time, however, there was no stopping The Tribesmen as they proceeded to win their 5th All-Ireland title, beating Kerry by 5 points in the final, 0-15 to 0-10. It was the start of the most successful era in Galway football, their memorable "Three In A Row".
