Former Meath great Terry Kearns

The 1967 All Ireland senior football final pitted Meath against Cork.

In a very tense and sporting game the final was decided by a moment of magic from midfielder Terry Kearns.

The St. Vincents clubman moved to the 40 midway through the first half. With a little over five minutes of the second period gone Kearns flickred a Mattie Kerrigan centre over the advancing Billy Morgan and into the Cork net. It proved the games only goal and the Royals went on to win 1-9 to 0-9 in front of over 70,000 spectators.

Kearns turned in a Man of the Match display that day and finished with 1-2 as Meath claimed Sam Maguire number 3.
