The 2015 Kilkenny Senior Hurling Championship was the 121st staging of the Kilkenny Senior Hurling Championship since its establishment in by the Kilkenny County Board in 1887. The championship began on 19 September 2015 and ended on 25 October 2015.

Ballyhale Shamrocks were the defending champions, however, they were defeated by O'Loughlin Gaels in the semi-final.[1][2][3]

On 25 October 2015, Clara won the championship following a 2-12 to 1-13 defeat of O'Loughlin Gaels.[4][5] This was their third championship title, their first in two championship seasons.


All but one of the twelve teams from the 2014 championship are participating in the top tier of Kilkenny hurling in 2015.

Mullinavat, who defeated St. Patrick's by 0-17 to 0-14 in the final of the intermediate championship in 2014, availed of their right to automatic promotion to the senior championship.

Similarly, Fenians defeated Tullaroan by 3-10 to 0-8 in the 2014 senior relegation play-off, and so Tullaroan were relegated to the intermediate grade for 2015.[6]
