The 1893 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final was the sixth All-Ireland Final and the deciding match of the 1893 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, an inter-county Gaelic football tournament for the top teams in Ireland.

Wexford were represented by Young Irelands, a club based in the Selskar area of Wexford town, while Cork were represented by Dromtariffe.[1]

Wexford led 1-1 to 0-2 early in the second half, when a pitch invasion began and several players were injured. The referee tried to restart the game with substitutes to replace injured players, but Cork refused. Wexford were awarded the title.[2]

Cork and Wexford did not meet again in the Championship until 2010.[1]
