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.
