The 1894 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final was the seventh All-Ireland Final and the deciding match of the 1894 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, an inter-county Gaelic football tournament for the top teams in Ireland.

The first game was a draw, 0-6 to 1-1 (at the time, a goal equalled five points) and so a replay was played. With ten minutes remaining, and Cork leading by 1-2 to 0-5 (seven points to five), several Dublin players were attacked by Cork supporters. Dublin refused to play on and the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) Central Council awarded them the championship.[1]

It was the third of six All-Ireland football titles won by Dublin in the 1890s.[2]
