The 2006 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship was the 120th staging of the All-Ireland championship since its establishment in 1887. The draw for the 2006 fixtures took place on November 2005.[1] The championship began on 14 May 2006 and ended on 3 September 2006.

Cork entered the championship as defending champions, however, they were beaten by Kilkenny in the All-Ireland final on a 1-16 to 1-13 score line.[2]

Teams[edit]

Twelve teams participated in hurling's top tier in 2006.

For the first time since 1983, the Ulster champions were not represented in the wider All-Ireland series of games. Antrim, in spite of being Ulster champions in 2005, subsequently lost all of their All-Ireland qualifier games and were relegated to the Christy Ring Cup after being beaten by Offaly and Laois in the relegation play-offs.[3]
