The 1969 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final was the 82nd All-Ireland Final and the deciding match of the 1969 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, an inter-county Gaelic football tournament for the top teams in Ireland.

Kerry claimed a three-point win, thanks mostly to three great saves by goalkeeper Johnny Culloty.[1]

This was also the first Championship meeting of Kerry and Offaly.[2]
