The 2014 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship was the 127th staging of the All-Ireland championship since its establishment by the Gaelic Athletic Association in 1887. The draw for the 2014 fixtures took place on 3 October 2013. [2] [3] The championship began on 27 April 2014 and ended on 7 September 2014.

Contents

On 7 June 2014 Kilkenny versus Offaly was broadcast on Sky Sports, the first time a Championship fixture was broadcast live to a UK-wide audience. [4] [5] British viewers were reported to have been "amazed and confused", "bemused but impressed" and "amused and confounded" after seeing hurling for the first time. [6] [7] [8]

Clare entered the championship as defending champions, however, they were defeated by Wexford. [9] Kilkenny won the All-Ireland title following a 2-17 to 2-14 defeat of Tipperary after a replay. [10] [11] [12]


Overview

All teams from the 2013 championship continued to line out in hurling's top tier in 2014.

On 23 March 2013, the GAA's annual Congress adopted a proposal from the Central Competition Controls Committee (CCCC) which sought to introduce a round-robin qualifying group in Leinster for five designated counties.

Ten counties competed in the 2013 Leinster championship; however, the CCCC proposal decreased the Leinster competition to a field of five regulars, namely Kilkenny, Dublin, Wexford, Offaly and Galway, alongside two more from a round-robin qualifying group featuring Laois, Westmeath, Carlow, London and Antrim. These five teams each played four games, with the top two qualifying for the Leinster Championship quarter-finals. The fourth-placed team met the winner of the Christy Ring Cup in a promotion/relegation play-off. The bottom county faced automatic relegation to the Christy Ring Cup. [13] [14]

Broadcasting

In the first year of a deal running from 2014 until 2016, a total of 45 provincial and All-Ireland championship matches in hurling and football were broadcast live on television in Ireland. [18] [19] A total of 31 games will be shown by RTÉ and 14 by Sky Sports for the first time. TV3's six year-involvement with broadcasting games came to an end in 2013. Sky Sports will also broadcast live the All-Ireland Hurling and Football semi-finals and finals along with RTÉ. [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25]

The first game to be broadcast by Sky Sports was the Leinster quarter-final between Kilkenny and Offaly in Nowlan Park on Saturday 7 June. [26] [27] Rachel Wyse and Brian Carney were announced as presenters of Sky's coverage, with Dave McIntyre and Mike Finnerty as commentators. [28] Analysts for the hurling championship were Jamesie O'Connor and Nicky English. [29] [30]

In May, the GAA and RTÉ launched a new streaming service called GAAGO intended to stream championship games worldwide. [31] The subscription-based service will be available to fans everywhere in the world outside of the island of Ireland, including all the games broadcast in Ireland exclusively by Sky Sports. [32] All 45 televised games from the football and hurling championships, as broadcast by both RTÉ and Sky will be available to watch on GAAGO. [33] For Great Britain, the games broadcast by Sky will only be available through Sky. The price for a worldwide GAAGO 'Season Pass' is €110 while in Britain, the GB Pass will be €60. A pay-per-game option is available for €10, and this will rise to €14 for the quarter-final, semi-final and final stages of the championship. [34]

Despite massive interest in the Leinster hurling semi-final replay between Kilkenny and Galway on 28 June, the game will not be shown live on television. The throw in time is fixed for 7.00pm and Sky Sports are already covering the Ulster football semi-final between Monaghan and Armagh with the GAA's television contracts preventing live television coverage of two championship games at the same time. [35] [36]

Controversies

Involvement of the British Sky Broadcasting Group

The decision by the GAA to grant access to satellite broadcasting company BSkyB of Championship hurling was criticised in some quarters. [38] The first attempt by Sky Sports to cover live televised hurling - a Leinster Championship encounter between Kilkenny and Offaly - drew an audience share of less than 10 per cent of that which tuned into the free-to-air Dublin/Laois encounter at Croke Park the following day. [39] In addition, the match was erroneously billed in advance by Sky as a "Connacht GAA football" game. [40]

Awards

Sunday Game Team of the Year

The Sunday Game team of the year was picked on 28 September, which was the night after the final replay. Richie Hogan was named the Sunday game player of the year. [41]

All Star Team of the Year

Richie Hogan was named the All Stars player of the year with Cathal Barrett named as the young player of the year at the awards ceremony on 24 October. [42] [43]
