The 1967 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final was the eightieth All-Ireland Final and the deciding match of the 1967 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, an inter-county Gaelic football tournament for the top teams in Ireland.

Cork led 0-3 to 0-1 at half-time, but Terry Kearns hit a goal six minutes into the second half and Meath went on to win. Cork's attempt at a late equalising goal was scuppered when Con O'Sullivan's short free was judged to be too short.[1]

Peter Darby captained Meath to victory.[2]

Meath would go on to tour Australia for some early examples of international rules football. Meath played five Australian state sides and won the lot, producing a combined score of 26-43 to 3-29.[3]
