1903 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final
|Event||1903 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship|
|Date||12 November 1905|
|Venue||Jones' Road, Dublin|
The 1903 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final was the sixteenth All-Ireland Final and the deciding match of the 1903 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, an inter-county Gaelic football tournament for the top teams in Ireland.
This was the fourth year in a row in which London were heavily beaten in the final; after this, they were no longer given a bye to the All-Ireland final.
The 1903 final marked the first time Kerry won an All-Ireland football title. They would go on to dominate the game for decades to come. Dublin were the dominant force in Gaelic football at this time with eight All-Ireland titles; within 40 years Kerry had surpassed this and have since left Dublin in the shade in terms of All-Ireland football titles secured.

It wasn't until the 1903 All-Ireland that Kerry won their first title by which stage Dublin had eight; it took Kerry less than 40 years to catch them.
