The 1889 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final was the second All-Ireland Final and the culmination of the 1889 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, an inter-county Gaelic football tournament for the top teams in Ireland. Tipperary were the winners.

The Queens County (Laois) team that lost to Tipperary were from the Portlaoise club.[1]

It was Tipperary's first All-Ireland football title: they would win three more in 1895, 1900 and 1920. Football has since declined in the county, with hurling now being more prominent.[2]
