The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship 1942 was the 56th series of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship, Ireland's premier hurling knock-out competition. Cork won the championship, beating Dublin 2-14 to 3-4 in the final.[1]

Teams[edit]

A total of eleven teams contested the championship, a reduction of one team from the 1941 championship.

The Leinster championship was once again contested by the six strongest hurling teams in the province.

The Munster championship was reduced to just four teams as Waterford, who had been regular participants and had won the provincial championship as recently as 1938, declined to field a team.

Galway, who had faced no competition in the Connacht championship since 1923, once again received a bye to the All-Ireland semi-final. There were no representatives from the Ulster championship in the All-Ireland series of games.
