Format[edit]

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:

  • The winners of the Munster Championship advanced directly to one of the All-Ireland semi-finals.
  • The winners of the Leinster Championship advanced directly to the second All-Ireland semi-final.
  • The winners of the Ulster Championship advanced directly to one of the All-Ireland quarter-finals where they were drawn to play Galway. The winners of this game would later play the Leinster champions in the All-Ireland semi-final.
  • The Munster runners-up were drawn to play the Leinster runners-up in the second All-Ireland quarter-final. The winners of this game would later play the Munster champions in the All-Ireland semi-final.
