The 1990 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship was the 104th staging of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship, the Gaelic Athletic Association's premier inter-county hurling tournament. The draw for the 1990 provincial fixtures took place in November 1989. The championship began on 13 May 1990 and ended on 2 September 1990.

Tipperary were the defending champions but were defeated by Cork in the Munster final.[1][2] London qualified for the championship for the first time in two years.

On 2 September 1990, Cork won the championship following a 5-15 to 2-21 defeat of Galway in the All-Ireland final.[3] This was their 27th All-Ireland title, their first in four championship seasons.

Cork's John Fitzgibbon was the championship's top scorer with 7-09. Cork's Tony O'Sullivan was the unanimous choice for Hurler of the Year.

Championship draw[edit]

As a result of the Republic of Ireland football team qualifying for the 1990 FIFA World Cup, the Munster Council took precautions in avoiding a fixtures clash and a potential loss of revenue by changing the dates and times of their games.

Teams[edit]

Overview[edit]

A total of fifteen teams contested the championship, two fewer teams than participated in the 1989 championship.

The Leinster championship was reduced to five teams as Westmeath decided to opt out and field a team in the All-Ireland Senior B Hurling Championship.

The Ulster championship was reduced to just two teams as Derry also decided to field a team in the lower championship.
