|Venue||Croke Park, Dublin|
The 1980 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final was the 93rd All-Ireland Final and the deciding match of the 1980 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, an inter-county Gaelic football tournament for the top teams in Ireland.
Roscommon went five points up early on, John 'Jigger' O'Connor getting a goal after 35 seconds. Mikey Sheehy pegged a goal back and in a very scrappy game (64 frees) the more experienced Kerry team ran out three-point victors.
It was the first of five All-Ireland football titles won by Kerry in the 1980s.
