The 1892 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final was the fifth All-Ireland Final and the deciding match of the 1892 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, an inter-county Gaelic football tournament for the top teams in Ireland.

Dublin were the winners; they managed to score a goal with ten minutes to go.

It was the second of six All-Ireland football titles won by Dublin in the 1890s.[1]

It was the first meeting between Dublin and Kerry. The rivalry between the sides would grow into something massive in the years and decades ahead.[2]

The first meeting in the 1892 All-Ireland final was at a time when the GAA was still in a state of flux – over the number of players on a team, the value of a goal (which when worth more than any number of points led to teams cramming their goalmouth; so if anyone says Donegal brought defence to a new extreme . . . )and the effects of the Parnell split were still vivid.
