Championship statistics[edit]

Miscellaneous[edit]

  • For the first time since 1969 the Leinster final sees a pairing other than Kilkenny and Wexford.
  • The Leinster final sees Offaly defeat Kilkenny to take their very first provincial title.
  • Limerick's victory in the Munster final foils Cork's hopes of an unprecedented sixth provincial title in-a-row.
  • In the All-Ireland semi-final between Galway and Offaly the referee, J. J. Landers, signalled the end of the game with 52 seconds of normal time yet to be played and at least another half a minute of 'lost' time to be added on. Offaly were in the middle of a comeback at that stage, after cutting Galway's lead from nine points to just two. The game is also the first-ever championship meeting between these two sides.
  • Galway's victory over Limerick in the championship decider is their first All-Ireland title since 1923.
