The Tipperary Senior Hurling Club Championship (known for sponsorship reasons as the Cidona Tipperary Senior Hurling Club Championship) is an annual club competition between the top Tipperary hurling clubs. The winners of the Tipperary Championship qualify to represent their county in the Munster Senior Club Hurling Championship and in turn, go on to the All-Ireland Senior Club Hurling Championship. The Tipperary County Champions in 2007 are Loughmore-Castleiney who became champions with a win over Drom-Inch. The Tipperary senior hurling championship is probably the most complicated system in Ireland as it strives to accommodate 25 teams. A knockout divisional system and group backdoor system has been introduced to accommodate these teams. Before the new system, the county championship was run on a divisional basis with the teams in the divisional finals going into the county quarter-finals and proceeding from there. It may not be long before this system is re-introduced because of the complexity of the current championship.

History

The first Tipperary Hurling Championship took place in 1887, Thurles were the first Tipperary Champions. Thurles Sarsfields have won the most titles (29).
