The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship 1901 was the 15th series of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship, Ireland's premier hurling knock-out competition. London won the championship, beating Cork 1–5 to 0–4 in the final.[1]

Rule change[edit]

For the first time ever a hurling championship took place in all of the four historic provinces of Ireland - Connacht, Leinster, Munster and Ulster. For the purposes of the all GAA competitions, Britain was designated as a fifth Irish province. As a consequence, the winners of the championship in Britain would meet the winners of the championship in Ireland to decide the All-Ireland title holders.
