The 1997 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final was the 110th All-Ireland Final and the deciding match of the 1997 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, an inter-county Gaelic football tournament for the top teams in Ireland.
Mayo were hoping to bridge a gap that stretched all the way back to their All-Ireland football title winning team of 1951. They failed, and would lose again to Kerry in 2004. And 2006. And then to Donegal in 2012 and Dublin in 2013.
