The 2006 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Final was a hurling match held at Croke Park, Dublin on 3 September 2006. The match was the 119th All-Ireland hurling final and was contested by Kilkenny and Cork, with Kilkenny putting in a fiercely determined and intense performance to win 1–16 to 1–13. It was the first meeting of these two sides in the All-Ireland final since 2004 when Cork were the winners. Cork were aiming to capture a third All-Ireland title in succession while Kilkenny, under the leadership of Brian Cody, were hoping to capture a first title since 2003. The prize for the winning team was the Liam MacCarthy Cup. While in recent years the All-Ireland final has been held on the second Sunday in September, the 2006 final was held a week earlier than normal in order to avoid a clash with golf's Ryder Cup. [2]
