The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship 1945 was the 59th series of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship, Ireland's premier hurling knock-out competition. Tipperary won the championship, beating Kilkenny 5-6 to 3-6 in the final.[1]

Format[edit]

The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship was run on a provincial basis as usual. All games were played on a knockout basis whereby once a team lost they were eliminated from the championship. The format for the All-Ireland series of games ran as follows:

  • The winners of the Leinster Championship advanced directly to the first All-Ireland semi-final.
  • Galway, a team who faced no competition in the Connacht Championship, entered the championship at the All-Ireland semi-final stage where they played the Leinster winners.
  • The winners of the Munster Championship advanced directly to the second All-Ireland semi-final.
  • The winners of the Ulster Championship advanced directly to the second All-Ireland semi-final where they played the Munster champions.
