The Ulster Hurling Minor Championship is an annual hurling competition organised by the Ulster Council of the Gaelic Athletic Association since 1930 for the youngest competitors (under-18) in the province of Ulster in Ireland. It is sponsored by the Electricity Supply Board and therefore officially known as the ESB Ulster GAA Hurling Minor Championship.[1]

The series of games are played during the summer months with the Ulster final currently being played on the last Sunday of June. The minor final provides the curtain-raiser to the senior final. The prize for the winning team is the Minor Hurling Cup.

The Ulster Championship is a part of the wider All-Ireland Minor Hurling Championship. The winners of the Ulster final advance directly to the quarter-final stage of the All-Ireland series of games.

Only a handful of teams currently participate in the Ulster Championship, due to dominance of Gaelic football in the province.
