The All-Ireland Intermediate Camogie Championship is the most important competition in the women’s field sport of camogie for second-tier county teams and for second-string teams of first-tier counties.[1] If the winning team comes from a second-tier county, that county is promoted to the following year's senior championship. Similarly, the winner of the All-Ireland junior championship is promoted to the following year's Intermediate Championship. The grade mirrors Division 2 of the National Camogie League. The final is played in Croke Park Dublin alongside the Senior and Junior finals. The competition is contested by Antrim, Kildare, Down, Meath, Waterford and the second teams of Cork, Galway, Kilkenny, Tipperary and Wexford.

History[edit]

The competition was inaugurated in 1992 as a competition with Corn Ui Phuirséil presented to the winners annually. After a short period when it was replaced by the All Ireland Senior B Championship, it was revived in 2008 and the Jack McGrath cup presented to the winners annually. The current champions are Wexford, who beat Antrim in the All-Ireland final of 2011.
