The 1966 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship was played from May to September 1966. Galway, making a fourth final appearance in succession and looking to secure a "Three In A Row" of All-Ireland titles, faced Meath. The two met in the semi-final stage of the 1964 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, when Galway triumphed with a 3-point victory. Meath were unable to stop the Tribesmen as they won by a six-point margin in the final, 1-10 to 0-07. The win completed a "Three In A Row" for the county. It would be another 32 years before Galway would win another All-Ireland title, in 1998 against Kildare.

“In football they measure forty-yard sprints. Nobody runs forty yards in basketball. Maybe you run the ninety-four feet of the court; then you stop, not on a dime, but on Miss Libertys torch. In football you run over somebodys face.”
—Donald Hall (b. 1928)
“Never burn bridges. Todays junior prick, tomorrows senior partner.”
—Kevin Wade, U.S. screenwriter, and Mike Nichols. Katharine Parker (Sigourney Weaver)
