The 1974 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final was the 87th All-Ireland Final and the deciding match of the 1974 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, an inter-county Gaelic football tournament for the top teams in Ireland.

Galway led 1-4 to 0-5 at half-time with a Michael Rooney goal. Paddy Cullen saved a penalty kick (placed 17th in RTÉ's 2005 series Top 20 GAA Moments) and Kevin Heffernan's Dublin staged a comeback to win by five points.[1]

It was Galway's second consecutive All-Ireland football final; they lost to Cork in 1973.[2]
