Overview

The All-Ireland Minor Hurling Championship features the youngest competitive players of the game of hurling - players must be under eighteen years of age on 1 January of the year of the competition. The first minor championship was played in 1928 when Cork were crowned the champions. The championship has been held every year since then, however, it was suspended for a period during The Emergency.

The 'Big Three' of Cork, Kilkenny and Tipperary are the most dominant teams in minor hurling. All three counties have claimed famous three-in-rows over the years. The coveted treble of winning senior, under-21 and minor titles in the same year has been achieved by Cork in 1970 and by Kilkenny in 1975 and 2003.
