The 2004 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, known for sponsorship reasons as the 2004 Bank of Ireland All-Ireland Senior Football Championship was the premier Gaelic football competition in 2005. It consisted of 33 teams and began on Sunday 2 May 2004. The championship concluded on Sunday 26 September 2004, when Mayo were defeated by Kerry by 1-20 to 2-9.

Format[edit]

Since the introducation of the so-called "back-door" system, a number of changes have taken place in the championship format. In 2004 the following system was used:

The provincial championships in Munster, Leinster, Ulster and Connacht will run as usual on a "knock-out" basis. These provincial games will then be followed by the "Qualifier" system:

  • Round 1 of the qualifiers includes all the counties (except New York) that do not qualify for the Provincial Semi-Finals. An open draw will be made to give eight pairings.
  • Round 2 consists of the eight defeated teams in the Provincial Semi-Finals playing against the eight winners from Round 1. A draw will be made to determine the eight pairings.
  • Round 3 will consist of the eight winners from Round 2. Another open draw will be made to determine the four pairings.
  • Round 4 consists of each of the four teams defeated in the Provincial Finals shall playing against the four winners from Round 3. A draw will be made to determine the four pairings.

The All-Ireland Quarter-Finals: Each of the four Provincial Champions will play one of the four winners from Round 4. The All-Ireland Semi-Finals shall be on a Provincial rots basis, initially determined by the Central Council. If a Provincial Championship winning team is defeated in its Quarter-Final, the team that defeats it shall take its place in the Semi-Final.
