Overview

The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship of 1989 was run on a provincial basis as usual. It was a knockout tournament with pairings drawn at random in the respective provinces - there were no seeds.

Each match was played as a single leg. If a match was drawn there was a replay, however, if both sides were still level at the end of that game another replay had to take place until a winner was eventually decided.

The format for the All-Ireland series of games ran as follows:
