Since the introducation of the so-called "back-door" system, a number of changes have taken place in the championship format. In 2004 the following system was used:
- Round 1 of the qualifiers includes all the counties (except New York) that do not qualify for the Provincial Semi-Finals. An open draw will be made to give eight pairings.
- Round 2 consists of the eight defeated teams in the Provincial Semi-Finals playing against the eight winners from Round 1. A draw will be made to determine the eight pairings.
- Round 3 will consist of the eight winners from Round 2. Another open draw will be made to determine the four pairings.
- Round 4 consists of each of the four teams defeated in the Provincial Finals shall playing against the four winners from Round 3. A draw will be made to determine the four pairings.
The All-Ireland Quarter-Finals: Each of the four Provincial Champions will play one of the four winners from Round 4. The All-Ireland Semi-Finals shall be on a Provincial rots basis, initially determined by the Central Council. If a Provincial Championship winning team is defeated in its Quarter-Final, the team that defeats it shall take its place in the Semi-Final.
