1922 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final
|Event||1922 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship|
|Date||17 October 1923|
|Venue||Croke Park, Dublin|
The 1922 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final was the 35th All-Ireland Final and the deciding match of the 1922 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, an inter-county Gaelic football tournament for the top teams in Ireland.
Galway were lucky to have even been there in the first place. Sligo had won that year's Connacht Senior Football Championship, defeating Roscommon, Mayo and Galway, before disposing of Tipperary in their subsequent All-Ireland semi-final meeting. However, "a flimsy technicality" led to a replay of the Galway versus Sligo Connacht final, which Sligo lost. Galway were now Connacht champions and elevated into the All-Ireland Senior Football Final at Sligo's expense. Sligo were left with ... nothing.
Dublin won by six points to four, their captain Paddy Carey scoring the final point from a 50-yard kick.
