The 1951 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship was the 65th staging of Ireland's premier Gaelic football knock-out competition.

Mayo won their second All-Ireland in a row.[1][2][3]

The Curse of 51

Mayo have not won an All-Ireland football final since 1951. Legend has it that a priest became incensed when the Mayo team bus returning home from the 1951 final passed by a funeral without showing due respect as they celebrated their All-Ireland win. The priest supposedly put a curse on Mayo, that they would not win another title until all of the team had died.[4] Since the death of Pádraig Carney in 2019, only Paddy Prendergast of the 1951 team is still living.[5][6]
