Teams will compete for the Seaghan O’Duffy Cup (Senior), Jack McGrath Cup (Intermediate) and Kathleen Mills Cup (Premier Junior).
Our three finals promise to be exciting encounters with five counties vying for silverware and a coveted All-Ireland title.
Kilkenny made this year’s Senior Final, after coming through a hard-fought Semi-Final with 2021 champions Galway, whilst Cork overcame Waterford in a tense and thrilling match in Croke Park.
Kilkenny will be looking to reclaim the silverware since their win against Galway in 2020. Cork will be seeking to make amends for last year’s All-Ireland Final defeat to Galway and move clear at the top of the roll of honour with 27 All-Ireland titles.
Galway will contest the Intermediate Final as they face a buoyant Cork side. Galway Intermediate team have impressively won every game in their journey to the Finals in the 2022 Glen Dimplex All-Ireland Championship. Cork will however be looking to take home the Jack McGrath Cup.
The Premier Junior will see the Kathleen Mills Cup being claimed by Ulster, where Antrim will take on Armagh in the finals curtain-raiser. Armagh overcame Antrim in June by a very tight margin of just two points.
