The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship 1896 was the tenth series of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship, Ireland's premier hurling knock-out competition. Tipperary won the championship, beating Dublin 8-14 to 0-4 in the final.[1]

Rule change[edit]

At the Gaelic Athletic Association's (GAA) annual congress it was decided to change the value of a goal. From 1892 until 1896 a goal was worth five points, however, the new change resulted in a goal being worth three points.

Miscellaneous[edit]

  • The Leinster final went to a replay as Kilkenny launched an objection against Dublin.
  • Tipperary became the second team to win back-to-back All-Ireland titles following their final victory over Dublin. Mikey Maher became the first person to captain two All-Ireland-winning teams.
