The 2011–12 All-Ireland Senior Club Hurling Championship was the 42nd staging of the All-Ireland hurling club championship since its establishment by the Gaelic Athletic Association in 1970. The draw for the 2011-12 fixtures took place in August 2011. The championship began on 9 October 2011 and ended on 17 March 2012. Clarinbridge were the defending champions, however, they did not qualify for the championship.[1]

Loughgiel Shamrocks secured the title with a 4-13 to 0-17 defeat of Coolderry in the All-Ireland final.[2] This was their second All-Ireland title.[3][4]

Teams[edit]

A total of fifteen teams contested the championship, including all of the teams from the 2010–11. The Armagh champions did not participate.

The 2011–12 championship also saw a number of first-time participants. Carrigtwohill of Cork won their first county championship since 1918 and represented the county in the provincial series. Similarly, Na Piarsaigh in Limerick and Drom-Inch in Tipperary won their very first county titles and contested the Munster series for the first time.
