The 2001 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship was the 115th edition of the GAA's premier gaelic football competition. It was played between May and September 2001. This was the first year that the qualifier system, whereby teams knocked out of the provincial competitions entered a secondary competition to qualify for the All-Ireland series, was used. A similar system had already been successfully used in the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship. Galway lost to Roscommon in the Connacht Semi-Final but managed to reach the All-Ireland Final, beating Wicklow, Armagh and Cork in the qualifiers. They exacted revenge against Roscommon in the quarter finals and defeated Derry in the semi-final. In the final, they outclassed a Meath side still jubilant after hammering the reigning champions Kerry in the semi-final to win their ninth All-Ireland Football title. Pádraic Joyce scored a personal tally of 0-10 in the final and finished the year as top scorer. Declan Meehan won player of the year

Format[edit]

The provincial championships in Munster, Leinster, Ulster and Connacht ran as usual on a "knock-out" basis. These provincial games were then followed by the "Qualifier" system:

  • Round 1 of the qualifiers included all the counties that did not qualify for the Provincial Semi-Finals, except for New York. An open draw was made to give eight pairings.
  • Round 2 consisted of the eight defeated teams in the Provincial Semi-Finals playing against the eight winners from Round 1. A draw was made to determine the eight pairings.
  • Round 3 consisted of the 8 winners from Round 2 playing each other in an open draw format.
  • Round 4 consisted of each of the four teams defeated in the Provincial Finals shall playing against the four winners from Round 3. A draw was made to determine the four pairings.

In the All-Ireland Quarter-Finals, each of the four Provincial Champions played one of the four winners from Round 4. The All-Ireland Semi-Finals were determined on a provincial rota basis, initially determined by the Central Council. If a Provincial Championship winning team was defeated in its Quarter-Final, the team that defeats it took its place in the Semi-Final.

Connacht Senior Football Championship[edit]

Due to an outbreak of foot and mouth disease in the UK, London took no part in the Connacht Senior Football Championship in 2001.[1]
