The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship of 1988 was the 102nd edition of Ireland's premier hurling knockout competition. The championship ran from May to September of that year, culminating with the All-Ireland final, held at Croke Park, Dublin on 4 September. The match was contested by Galway and Tipperary, with Galway taking the title by 1–15 to 0–14. It was Galway's second All-Ireland title in-a-row.

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 the first All-Ireland semi-final.
  • The winners of the Leinster Championship advanced directly to the second All-Ireland semi-final.
  • The winners of the Ulster Championship advanced directly to the first All-Ireland semi-final where they played the Munster champions.
  • Galway, a team who faced no competition in the Connacht Championship, automatically advanced to a lone All-Ireland quarter-final where they were drawn to play the winners of the All-Ireland 'B’ championship.
