The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship 1946 was the 60th series of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship, Ireland's premier hurling knock-out competition. Cork won the championship, beating Kilkeny 7-5 to 3-8 in the final at Croke Park, Dublin.

Format[edit]

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 Munster Championship advanced directly to one of the All-Ireland semi-finals.
  • The winners of the Leinster Championship advanced directly to the second All-Ireland semi-final.
  • Antrim, the representatives from the Ulster Championship, were drawn to play the Leinster champions in the All-Ireland semi-final.
  • Galway, a team who faced no competition in the Connacht Championship, automatically advanced to the All-Ireland semi-final where they were drawn to play the Munster champions.
