The 1968 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final was the 81st All-Ireland Final and the deciding match of the 1968 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, an inter-county Gaelic football tournament for the top teams in Ireland.

Seán O'Neill and John Murphy scored scrappy goals for Down, while Brendan Lynch's goal for Kerry was too late to make a difference.[1]

This was Down's third appearance in an All-Ireland final, and their third win from three.[2] It was the third of three All-Ireland football titles won by Down in the 1960s, which made them joint "team of the decade" with Galway who also won three.[3]
