The 2006 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final was the 119th All-Ireland Final and the deciding match of the 2006 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, an inter-county Gaelic football tournament for the top teams in Ireland.

Kerry won by 13 points.

Mayo were hoping to bridge a gap that stretched all the way back to their All-Ireland football title winning team of 1951.[1] They failed yet again, having lost to Kerry in 2004 and 1997, Meath in 1996 and Cork in 1989.[2]
