The All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship is a competition for inter-county teams in the women's field sport of game of camogie played in Ireland.[1] The series of games are organised by the Camogie Association and are played during the summer months with the All-Ireland Camogie Final being played on the second Sunday in September in Croke Park, Dublin. The prize for the winning team is the O'Duffy Cup. The current champions are Cork, who claimed their twenty-fifth title thanks to a victory over Kilkenny in Croke Park, Dublin.

Participants[edit]

Counties Participating: The county is a geographical region in Ireland, and each of 29 of the 32 counties in Ireland organises its own camogie affairs. Eight Counties participated in the 2011 Championship following the promotion of Intermediate champions Offaly at the end of the 2010 season. These are Clare, Cork, Dublin, Galway, Kilkenny, Offaly, Tipperary and Wexford.

Format[edit]

The counties participate in a group series with the top four progressing to the All-Ireland Semi-Finals. The eight teams were divided into two groups of four in 2009. In every other year the teams were placed in a single group of between six and eight teams. The first two championships were played on an open draw basis until in 1934 the championship was changed to the traditional quadro-provincial structure traditional to Gaelic Games. Following the withdrawal of Connacht from the inter-provincial senior semi-finals the competition changed to an open-draw knockout system in 1974.

Introduction of Group System in 2006[edit]

The championship structure was changed from a knockout to a round-robin system in 2006. The system was retained despite some initial criticism.[2] An anomaly occurred in four of the first six championships under the new format (2006, 2008, 2010 and 2011) with the defeated All-Ireland finalists beating the eventual champions in the group stages, only to eventually lose to the same opposition in the All-Ireland final:

Winners Table[edit]

Dublin have won the All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship the most times – twenty-six titles as of 1984. They won the very first All-Ireland title in 1932 and went on to dominate the competition for the next fifty years. Between 1948 and 1955 they won eight consecutive titles in-a-row. Two years later in 1957 Dublin began another great run of success which ended in 1966 with the capturing of their tenth consecutive All-Ireland title. Had it not been for defeats in 1947, 1956 and 1967 it is reasonable to assume that Dublin could have captured twenty-one All-Ireland titles in succession. For a twenty-year period from 1974 until 1994 the Kilkenny camogie team dominated the championship. Between 1999 and 2006 Tipp won five All-Ireland titles from eight consecutive final appearances. Since 1997 Cork have won eight All-Ireland titles, their latest coming in 2014.

Six counties - Louth (1934 and 1936), Waterford (1945), Down (1948), Derry (1954), Mayo (1959) and Limerick (1980) each appeared in All-Ireland finals without ever winning the O’Duffy Cup while London appeared in the All-Ireland final “proper”, effectively a play-off between the All-Ireland champions and British provincial champions in 1949 and 1950. Three counties, Kildare (1933), Cavan (1940 and 1941) and Clare (1944, and 1978) have contested the All-Ireland semi-final without qualifying for a final. The following is a list of the top county teams by number of wins.

The Cork team that participated in the “official” Munster championship was effectively a junior team. Dublin beat Wicklow in an “unofficial” Leinster final. Cork and Dublin then agreed to play off in a replayed All Ireland final which featured most of the leading stars of the time.
