Qualifiers[edit]

The qualifiers gives teams defeated in the provincial championships another chance at winning the All-Ireland.

Round 1: (4 matches) This round involves eight teams: Galway, who enter the championship at this stage, the Ulster runners-up and the defeated teams from the quarter-finals and semi-finals of the Leinster and Munster campaigns. An open draw is made to determine the pairings, however, repeat games cannot take place. Four teams are eliminated at this stage while the four winners advance to round 2.

Round 2: (3 matches) This round involves six teams: the defeated Leinster and Munster finalists and the four winners from round 1. An open draw is made to determine the pairings, however, repeat games cannot take place. Three teams are eliminated at this stage while the three winners advance to the All-Ireland quarter-finals.

All-Ireland Championship[edit]

Quarter-final: (2 matches) These are two lone games involving the Ulster champions and the three winners from round 2 of the qualifiers. Two teams are eliminated at this stage while the two winning teams advance to the semi-finals.

Semi-finals: (2 matches) The winners of the two quarter-finals join the Leinster and Munster winners to make up the semi-final pairings. The provincial champions are drawn in opposite semi-finals. Two teams are eliminated at this stage while the two winning teams advance to the final.

Final: (1 match) The winners of the two semi-finals contest the All-Ireland final.

All-Ireland Final[edit]

The new Qualifier system threw up an interesting pairing in the All-Ireland final. It was the Leinster champions Kilkenny versus Clare, who were knocked out of the provincial championship in the very first round. Kilkenny had the upper hand for the whole game as D.J. Carey and Henry Shefflin scored goals for Kilkenny. Clare narrowed Kilkenny's lead in the second half, however, they missed two goal chances. Kilkenny won the title for the 27th time.
