The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship of 1960 was the 74th edition of Ireland’s premier hurling knockout competition. The championship ran from May to September of that year, culminating with the All-Ireland final, held at Croke Park, Dublin on 4 September. The match was contested by Wexford and Tipperary, with Wexford taking the title by 2-15 to 0-11. It was Wexford’s fourth All-Ireland title ever and their third in six years.
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:
- There were no All-Ireland semi-finals.
- The winners of the Munster Championship advanced directly to the All-Ireland final.
- The winners of the Leinster Championship advanced directly to the All-Ireland final.
- The Ulster Championship remained suspended due to a lack of competition.
- Galway, a team who faced no competition in the Connacht Championship, played in the Munster Championship for the second consecutive year.
|Wexford||2-15 – 0-11||Tipperary|
