The Tyrone Senior Football Championship (known for sponsorship reasons as the Power NI Tyrone Senior Football Championship) is an annual Gaelic Athletic Association competition organised by Tyrone GAA between the top gaelic football clubs in County Tyrone. The winners represent Tyrone in the Ulster Senior Club Football Championship.

The 16 clubs in Division 1 of the All-County Football League in Tyrone compete on a straight knockout basis. Between 1999 and 2007, the competition was played for between 24 clubs.

The winners receive the O'Neill Cup.

Killyclogher are the champions by defeating Coalisland in the replay on 21 October 2016.


To date, 24 different clubs have won the Tyrone Senior Football Championship though some of these no longer exist, including Washingbay Shamrocks, Cookstown Brian Og, Fintona Davitts and Strabane Faugh-a-Bealach.

There was no Tyrone senior football club championship in the 1906-7, 1909–13, 1914–16, 1918–19, 1920-23 seasons and in 1932. The 1939 competition was left unfinished.
