The 1890 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Final was the 3rd All-Ireland Final and the culmination of the 1890 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship, an inter-county hurling tournament for the top teams in Ireland. The match was held at Clonturk Park, Dublin, on 16 November 1890, between Cork and Wexford. The match was abandoned by the Cork team due to rough play by their opponents, with Wexford leading 2-2 to 1-6 (at the time, one goal equalled five points, so Wexford led 12 to 11). Cork were later awarded the title.
