The 2013 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship was the 126th staging of the All-Ireland championship since its establishment in 1887. The draw for the 2013 fixtures took place on 4 October 2012. [1] The championship began on 5 May 2013 and ended on 28 September 2013 with Clare winning their fourth All Ireland title after a 5–16 to 3–16 win against Cork in the replayed final. [2]

Contents

Kilkenny were the defending champions. [3] However, they were knocked out of the Leinster Championship by eventual Leinster champions Dublin at the semi-final stage and Cork saw them off in the All-Ireland quarter-final. Limerick won the Munster Championship for the first time since 1996. Cork defeated Dublin and Clare defeated Limerick in the All-Ireland semi-finals.

The 2013 Championship has been described by many as one of the best ever. [4] [5] [6] [7] In February 2014, the GAA announced that both the 2013 football and hurling Championships brought in €11.9m in gate receipts, an increase of €1.3m for the hurling championship. [8]

The introduction of Hawk-Eye for Championship matches at Croke Park fell foul in a high-profile [9] blunder by the computer system which led to use of Hawk-Eye being suspended during the All-Ireland semi-finals on 18 August. During the minor game between Limerick and Galway, Hawk-Eye ruled a point for Limerick as a miss although the graphic showed the ball passing inside the posts, causing confusion around the stadium - the referee ultimately waved the valid point wide provoking anger from fans, viewers and TV analysts covering the game live. [10] The system was subsequently stood down for the senior game which followed, owing to "an inconsistency in the generation of a graphic". [11] Hawk-Eye admitted they were to blame and as a result Limerick, who were narrowly defeated after extra-time, announced they would be appealing over Hawk-Eye's costly failure. [9] The incident drew attention from the UK, where Hawk-Eye had made its debut in English soccer's Premier League the day before. [12]

Teams

All teams from the 2012 championship continued to line out in hurling's top tier in 2013.

Kilkenny were installed as the favourites to retain the All-Ireland title for a third consecutive year and to secure a remarkable tenth championship in fourteen seasons. Tipperary and Galway, the last two teams to beat Kilkenny in championship hurling, were regarded as the two teams most likely to provide the strongest challenge to Kilkenny's supremacy once again. Limerick were ranked at 20/1 as they hoped to end a forty-year wait for the Liam MacCarthy Cup. Waterford, a team who won four Munster titles between 2002 and 2010, were seen as a team to have missed out on their chance at an All-Ireland title and were ranked at 25/1. [13] London, the winners of the 2012 Christy Ring Cup, availed of their automatic right to promotion to the top tier and joined the Leinster championship. [14]

Prior to the championship draw it emerged that Croke Park officials had written to the Laois County Board inviting the county hurlers to participate in the 2013 Christy Ring Cup. This was prompted by Laois's poor results during the previous few seasons. [15] In spite of these concerns Laois decided to remain in hurling's top tier and subsequently won two Leinster Championship matches. [16]

Broadcasting

RTÉ and TV3 provide live coverage and highlights of matches in Ireland on The Sunday Game Live and Championship Live respectively, with RTÉ showing the All-Ireland Final live. Setanta Sports and TG4 show highlights of matches in Ireland also. Setanta Sports broadcasts live Championship matches in Australia. Also Setanta Sports provides live matches in Asia. The Championship Live live programme was presented by Matt Cooper, usually from an on-pitch studio with analysis from Daithí Regan, Jamesie O'Connor, and Nicky English. The Sunday Game live programme was presented by Michael Lyster with analysis usually from Cyril Farrell, Ger Loughnane, Liam Sheedy, and Tomás Mulcahy. Highlights of all games were shown on The Sunday Game programme which aired usually at 9:30pm on Sundays on RTÉ Two and was presented by Des Cahill with analysis from Eddie Brennan and Donal Óg Cusack.

Television coverage, in particular that of the Leinster Hurling Championship has been criticised in some circles. Neither RTÉ or TV3 decided to broadcast both Leinster Hurling Championship semi-finals. Both channels also declined the offer from the Leinster GAA to reschedule the Dublin - Kilkenny semi-final replay in order for it to be broadcast. [17]

These matches were broadcast live on television in Ireland
