The 1977 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final was the ninetieth All-Ireland Final and the deciding match of the 1977 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, an inter-county Gaelic football tournament for the top teams in Ireland. The game was contested by Armagh and Dublin. Dublin retained the Sam Maguire Cup.

This was Armagh's second ever All-Ireland final. Their previous appearance was in 1953. Dublin had appeared in the previous three finals, winning two of those (1974 and 1976).

Jimmy Keaveney scored 2-6, which was the amount Dublin won by. This final's eight goals is joint most scored in a final, a record shared with the 1948 match.[1]

Armagh would not return to an All-Ireland football decider until 2002.
