The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship 1983 ran from May to September of that year. The All-Ireland Hurling Final was won by Kilkenny who beat Cork by 2–14 to 2–12.

Format[edit]

The provincial championships in Munster and Leinster were all played on a knock-out basis as usual. In keeping with the rotation system for advancement to the All-Ireland final, the Leinster champions automatically qualified for the final of 1983. Galway, having no competition in the Connacht Championship, played the winners of a preliminary game between Kerry and Antrim. The winners of this quarter-final went on to play the Munster champions in a single All-Ireland semi-final.

Championship statistics[edit]

Miscellaneous[edit]

  • Tipperary's victory over Clare in the Munster quarter-final is the team's first in the provincial championship since 1973.
  • The attendance of 20,816 at the Munster final is the lowest at the provincial decider since 1972.
  • In the All-Ireland final two Kilkenny players achieve rare distinctions. Goalkeeper Noel Skehan wins a record-breaking ninth All-Ireland medal, however, his first three were won as non-playing substitutes. Midfielder Frank Cummins wins his seventh All-Ireland medal on the field of play, equalling the record of four other Kilkenny players from the early part of the century. It is his eighth winners' medal overall as he won a non-playing substitutes' medal in 1967. Cummins also joins a unique group of players who won All-Ireland medals in three different decades.
