Teams

The All-Ireland camogie championships are structured in three tiers -

The All-Ireland Intermediate Camogie Championship is the most important competition in the women’s field sport of camogie for second-tier county teams and for second-string teams of first-tier counties. If the winning team comes from a second-tier county, that county is promoted to the following year's senior championship. Similarly, the winner of the All-Ireland junior championship is promoted to the following year's Intermediate Championship. The grade mirrors Division 2 of the National Camogie League. The final is played in Croke Park Dublin alongside the Senior and Junior finals. The competition is contested by Antrim, Kildare, Down, Meath, Waterford and the second teams of Cork, Galway, Kilkenny, Tipperary and Wexford.

The All-Ireland Junior Camogie Championship is the most important competition for third-tier county teams in the women's field sport of camogie and for second-string teams of first-tier counties. In accordance with the practice in GAA competitions the term junior applies to the level of competition rather than the age group.

Nine of the senior camogie teams enter second teams in either the intermediate or junior championships. If the intermediate championship is won by a county's first team, that team is promoted to next year's senior championship. The winner of the junior championship is promoted to next year's intermediate championship provided that this does not result in two teams from the same county being in the same championship tier.
