The 2009 National Hurling League was held between February and May, 2009. 35 GAA county hurling teams, 34 from Ireland (includes South Down & Fingal), and London contested it. Kilkenny were the Division 1 champions.

Format[edit]

The 2009 format of the National Hurling League is a new system consisting of five divisions. There are thirty-four teams competing: Divisions One and Two have eight teams in each, Division Three A contains six, Three B contains seven, and there are six teams in Division Four.[1] Each team plays all of the other teams in its division once; the top two teams in each division contest the division final, and the champions of divisions Two, Three A, Three B and Four are promoted. The bottom-placed team in divisions One, Two, Three A and Three B is relegated. The winners of the Division One final are the 2009 NHL champions.
