The 1960 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final was the 73rd All-Ireland Final and the deciding match of the 1960 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, an inter-county Gaelic football tournament for the top teams in Ireland.

The game turned in Down's favour 11 minutes into the second half with Dan McCartan scoring a goal directly from a line ball; two minutes later Paddy Doherty scored a penalty.[1]

This was Down's first ever appearance in an All-Ireland final, and it brought with it their first win. It was the first of three All-Ireland football titles won by Down in the 1960s, which made them joint "team of the decade" with Galway who also won three.[2] Down won their next four All-Ireland football finals, with this run only broken in their sixth appearance, by a one-point defeat to Cork in 2010.[3][4][5]

This was also the first Championship meeting of Down and Kerry.[6]
