Miscellaneous[edit]

  • Dublin defeated Kilkenny in the Leinster final, however, a subsequent objection was upheld and the result was overturned. Kilkenny were then declared champions and represented the province in the All-Ireland series.
  • Antrim were nominated as the Ulster representatives in the All-Ireland series. It was the last time the Ulster champions progressed to the All-Ireland semi-final until 1943. The Ulster Championship took place after the completion of the All-Ireland series, which Antrim went on to win.
