The 2010 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship was the 124th edition of the GAA's premier inter-county Gaelic football tournament, played between 31 of the 32 counties of Ireland plus London and New York.

The draw for the championship took place on 22 October 2009.[1] The championship began on 2 May 2010 and concluded with the All-Ireland final at Croke Park on 19 September 2010. Cork defeated Down by 0-16 to 0-15 to win their seventh All-Ireland senior title, and their first since 1990.

The 2010 championship was unusual in that all four provincial champions (Kerry, Meath, Roscommon and Tyrone) were knocked out in the All-Ireland quarter-finals,[2] and all four provincial runners-up (Limerick, Louth, Sligo and Monaghan) were eliminated in the fourth and final round of the All-Ireland qualifiers. Kerry and Sligo were defeated by Down, Meath and Monaghan by Kildare, Roscommon and Limerick by Cork, and Tyrone and Louth by Dublin. Cork then defeated Dublin in the first All-Ireland semi-final, before Down defeated Kildare in the second.

Format[edit]

Four knockout (single elimination format) provincial championships were played. London and New York competed in Connacht. The four provincial champions advanced to the All-Ireland quarter-finals.

  • The 16 teams eliminated before reaching a provincial semi-final competed in Round One of the Qualifiers (New York did not compete). The eight winners of Round One advanced to Round Two.
    • Qualifiers, Round Two: The eight teams eliminated in provincial semi-finals each played one of the eight winners of Round One.
    • Qualifiers, Round Three: The eight winners of Round Two played off to reduce the number to four.
    • Qualifiers, Round Four: The four teams eliminated in provincial finals each played one of the four winners of Round Three.
  • All-Ireland Quarter-Finals: The four provincial champions each played one of the four winners of Round Four.
  • The winners of the All-Ireland Quarter-Finals then advanced to the Semi-Finals, and the winners of the Semi-Finals went on to the 2010 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final.
