The 1963 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final was the 76th All-Ireland Final and the deciding match of the 1963 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, an inter-county Gaelic football tournament for the top teams in Ireland.

Brian McDonald scored Dublin's goal in a small-rectangle scuffle involving six defenders and four attackers. Galway narrowed the gap to 1 point near the end, but John Timmons put Dublin two ahead. The referee (Eamon Moules, Wicklow) denied Galway a last-minute penalty.[1][2]

Galway were beaten by a Simon Behan goal.[3]
