1956 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship
The 1956 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship
was the 70th staging of the All-Ireland hurling
championship since its establishment by the Gaelic Athletic Association
in 1887. The championship began on 22 April 1956 and ended on 23 September 1956.
Wexford were the defending champions, and retained their All-Ireland crown following a 2-14 to 2-8 defeat of Cork.
A total of thirteen teams contested the championship, a reduction of one on the previous championship. Wicklow withdrew and did not field a team in the Leinster Senior Hurling Championship.
