The Kerry Senior Football Championship is a Gaelic football competition in Ireland. It is confined to the strongest football clubs in Kerry together with combination teams from regional divisions in the county. It was first competed for in 1887. The winners get the Bishop Moynihan Cup, if they are a club team, qualify to take part in the Munster Senior Club Football Championship. The winners of this competition take part in the All-Ireland Senior Club Football Championship. Until recently, if the winners are a divisional side the best placed club side played in Munster as amalgamated clubs can not compete in the Munster Championship. Presently if the winners are a divisional side the winners of the Kerry Senior Football Club Championship represent Kerry in Munster. The current holders are Dr. Crokes. The winner of the County Championship also has the honour of naming the Captain of the Kerry for the next Senior Football Campaign.
