Contents

Kilkenny entered the championship as defending champions, however, they were defeated by Limerick in the All-Ireland final on a score line of 5–6 to 1–5 victory.

Teams

A total of thirteen teams contested the championship, however, there were some changes from the 1935 championship. Wexford declined to field a team in Leinster, while in Munster Kerry reentered the championship after a long absence.

Miscellaneous

  • The All-Ireland semi-final between Limerick and Galway is suspended ten minutes into the second half when a melee develops and a Galway player is knocked unconscious. At a subsequent meeting of the Gaelic Athletic Association's (GAA) Central Council, Limerick were awarded the title as Galway were suspended from the championship.
