Championship statistics[edit]

Miscellaneous[edit]

  • Tipperary's defeat by Limerick in the first round of the Munster championship was the team's first defeat since the provincial decider of 1963. It also put an end to Tipperary's hopes of capturing a third All-Ireland title in-a-row.
  • Prior to the Munster semi-final between Limerick and Cork there was a minute's silence in memory of Dr. Rogers, Bishop of Killaloe, who died the previous day.
  • In the Leinster semi-final Wexford's Willie Murphy scores a remarkable own-goal for Dublin.
