The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship 1938 was the 52nd series of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship, Ireland's premier hurling knock-out competition. Dublin won the championship, beating Waterford 2-5 to 1-6 in the final.[1]


The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship was run on a provincial basis as usual. All games were played on a knockout basis whereby once a team lost they were eliminated from the championship. The format for the All-Ireland series of games ran as follows:

  • The winners of the Leinster Championship advanced directly to the All-Ireland final.
  • The winners of the Munster Championship advanced directly to a lone All-Ireland semi-final.
  • Galway, a team who faced no competition in the Connacht Championship, entered the competition at the All-Ireland semi-final stage where they played the Munster champions.
  • There were no representatives from the Ulster Championship in the All-Ireland series of games.
