Format[edit]

Overview[edit]

The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship of 1989 was run on a provincial basis as usual. It was a knockout tournament with pairings drawn at random in the respective provinces - there were no seeds.

Each match was played as a single leg. If a match was drawn there was a replay, however, if both sides were still level at the end of that game another replay had to take place until a winner was eventually decided.

The format for the All-Ireland series of games ran as follows:

  • The winners of the Munster Championship advanced directly to the first All-Ireland semi-final.
  • The winners of the Leinster Championship advanced directly to the second All-Ireland semi-final.
  • Galway entered the championship at the All-Ireland semi-final stage where they played the Munster winners.
  • The winners of the Ulster Championship played the All-Ireland 'B' champions in a lone All-Ireland quarter-final. The winners of this game advanced to the All-Ireland semi-final where they played the Leinster winners.
