The All-Ireland Hurling Championship: Past and Present


There is sure to be some excitement as the 2014 All-Ireland Championship Final draws closer. The semi-finals start with Kilkenny playing Limerick on the tenth of August and Cork playing Tipperary on the seventeenth. Who will be the final two teams that play on September seventh? Who will be the All-Ireland Hurling Champions of 2014? We’ll just have to wait and see.

We’ve added many new hurling galleries to the archive (144, to be exact!) take a look through them to see how the Cork, Tipperary, Kilkenny, and Limerick teams faired in past All-Ireland Hurling Championships. 
Cork beat Kilkenny in the 1966 All-Ireland Hurling Final.
Here is the Cork team that beat Kilkenny again in the 1978 All-Ireland Hurling Final.

Then, Kilkenny beat Cork in the 1982 All-Ireland Hurling Final.

 In 1964 All-Ireland Hurling Final, Tipperary beat Kilkenny.


The last time Limerick won the All-Ireland Final was in 1973 (Sorry, no pictures of this game!). Who knows, maybe they will make a comeback this year.
