The 1983 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship was the 97th staging of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship, the Gaelic Athletic Association's premier inter-county hurling tournament. The draw for the 1980 fixtures took place in September 1979. The championship began on 29 May 1983 and ended on 4 September 1983.

Contents

Kilkenny were the defending champions.

On 4 September 1983, Kilkenny won the championship following a 2-14 to 2-12 defeat of Cork in the All-Ireland final. This was their 23rd All-Ireland title and their second in succession.

Kilkenny's Billy Fitzpatrick was the championship's top scorer with 1-24. Kilkenny's Frank Cummins was the choice for Texaco Hurler of the Year.

Format

The provincial championships in Munster and Leinster were all played on a knock-out basis as usual. In keeping with the rotation system for advancement to the All-Ireland final, the Leinster champions automatically qualified for the final of 1983. Galway, having no competition in the Connacht Championship, played the winners of a preliminary game between Kerry and Antrim. The winners of this quarter-final went on to play the Munster champions in a single All-Ireland semi-final.
