Galway are All-Ireland Senior Hurling Champions 1987.

All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship and B Championship Overview 1987

The 1987 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship (SHC) was a marathon for its time, beginning on May 3 with a Senior B Hurling Championship Preliminary Round game between Meath and Kildare and concluding on September 6 with Galway’s triumph in the All-Ireland Final.

In between Carlow won the All-Ireland Senior B Home Championship; London won both the British Provincial Championship and All-Ireland Senior B Championship; Tipperary the Munster Senior Hurling Championship (having to win both Semi-Final and Final on Replays); and Kilkenny won the Leinster Senior Hurling Championship. With the Senior and Senior B Championships inter-locked through the Senior B Champions qualifying to meet Antrim in the All-Ireland Quarter-Finals, it was a long and tricky path for any potential All-Ireland Champion. [References: 1-23]

All-Ireland SHC B Home Championship RECAP

Carlow defeated Down by a single point in the GAA All-Ireland Senior Hurling B Home Championship Final at Trim on 21st June 1987 and would go on to take on London for the All-Ireland Senior Hurling B Championship and the right to play Antrim in the GAA All-Ireland Senior Championship. [References: B 8]

The SHC B Home Championship had started with a preliminary game in Newbridge in early May where Meath easily defeated host Kildare by 2-13 to 0-6 [References: B 1]. The First Round games later on in May were hit by the withdrawal of Mayo, who with only 45-50 Hurling players in the county and a large amount of injuries could not take the pitch at Aughrim versus Wicklow who received a walkover to meet Carlow in the Semi-Finals [References: B 2] . Carlow had knocked out Meath by five points in Round 1, winning by 3-17 to 4-9, in a high-scoring encounter [References: B 3-5]. The other Semi-Final was to be contested between Roscommon, who had little trouble defeating Armagh; and Down, who had a lucky escape against Derry, needing a replay after a last minute equaliser against the Oak Leaf county in the first match [References: B 4-5].

The Semi-Finals saw Down step up against Roscommon, winning 2-19 to 1-5, while Carlow were made to work against Wicklow, prevailing 1-13 to 0-12 [References: B 6-7] . The Home Final, played in Trim, saw Carlow again winning narrowly, this time by just a point as they triumphed by 1-15 to 1-14 versus Down, and would go on to meet British Provincial Champions London in the All-Ireland SHC B Final. [References: B 8]

British Provincial SHC B Final RECAP

London were made to fight hard to defeat Hertfordshire by just two points at the Hertfordshire home in Watford in the GAA British Provincial SHC B Senior Hurling Championship on 24th May 1987. With the victory London went on to meet Carlow, the All-Ireland SHC B Home Champions, in the All-Ireland SHC B Senior Hurling B Championship decider for a shot at playing Antrim in the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Quarter-Finals. [Reference: B 8-9]

Leinster SHC Recap

The 1987 Leinster GAA Senior Hurling Championship (SHC) was won by Kilkenny after a “brilliant comeback” in the final versus Offaly [Reference: 5]. The Cats were not extended in earlier rounds when defeating Westmeath by 15 points and Wexford by eight [References: 2-3, 10]. Offaly had disposed of Dublin (eight point margin) and Laois (six point margin) to set up the finale [References: 1, 4, 10]. The Cats went on to meet Ulster representatives Antrim in the All-Ireland Semi-Finals. [References: 5]

Munster SHC Recap

Tipperary won the Munster GAA Senior Hurling Championship (SHC) for the first times in 16 years in 1987, after coming out on fire in Extra Time versus Cork in the Munster SHC Final Replay to win by nine points [References: 13, 19]. Tipperary had run a marathon to win the Munster Championship by the standards of the day in 1987, having to first defeat Kerry in Round 1, before needing a replay against both Clare (in the Semi-Finals) and Cork in the Final [References: 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 13, 19] . After Clare almost pulled of the shock of the Munster Championship at Killarney, the Premier County “went on the rampage” in the Replay, outscoring Clare by 4-17 to 0-8 [References: 8, 10].

In other matches the Deise had also come close to causing a shock in the First Round, losing 1-14 to 2-15 to Limerick [References: 7], who were defeated by Cork in another Semi-Final Replay [References: 9, 11]. After Tipp’s momentous victory they went forward to meet Galway, the Connacht representatives in the All-Ireland Semi-Finals [References: 12-13]

All-Ireland SHC B Final RECAP (British SHC B Champions v Home SHC B Champions)

British Provincial Hurling Champions London travelled to Carlow for the GAA All-Ireland Senior Hurling B Championship Final where they triumphed 0-20 to 1-15 against the hosts and Home Final Champions, Carlow, and thus joined the exclusive club of GAA Senior Hurling Championship Counties as their reward was to meet Antrim in the SHC Quarter-Finals. [References: B 1-2]

All-Ireland SHC Finals Recap (Provincial Champions and All-Ireland SHC B Champions)

Galway ended an agonizing sequence of two All-Ireland Final defeats in two years by defeating Kilkenny 1-12 to 0-9 in a tense and low-scoring All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship (SHC) Final at Croke Park on 6th of September 1987. [Reference: 23]

The All-Ireland Finals series had begun in Casement Park, Antrim where London, the British Provincial Champions and All-Ireland Senior Hurling B Champions had put up a brave fight against the Ulster representatives, who had no opposition in the Championship prior to meeting the exiles. Antrim eventually prevailed 3-14 to 1-15 [Reference: 20].

Likewise, Galway, with no opposition at this level in Connacht, were playing their first game of the Championship when they defeated surprise Munster Champions Tipperary in the Semi-Finals by 3-20 to 2-17 [Reference: 21]. Antrim were not the pushover that was expected against Kilkenny in the Semi-Finals in what was turning out to be an entertaining and highly competitive Championship [Reference: 22]. Kilkenny eventually saw off the gallant Ulster county 2-18 to 2-11, before succumbing to the Tribesmen in the All-Ireland Final. [Reference: 22-23]
