Match summary

Cavan retained the title they had won in 1947 at the Polo Grounds in Manhattan, New York City.[2][3]

In a heavy wind, Cavan led 3-2 to 0-0 at half-time, but Mayo came back to lead the game. Cavan eventually made it two-in-a-row with a Peter Donahue point. This final's eight goals is the most scored in a final, a record shared with the 1977 match.[4]
