The Kilkenny County Board of the Gaelic Athletic Association (Kilkenny GAA) (Irish: Cumann Lúthchleas Gael Coiste Cill Channaigh) is one of the 32 county boards of the GAA in Ireland and is responsible for Gaelic Games in County Kilkenny. The county board has its head office and main grounds at Nowlan Park and is also responsible for Kilkenny inter-county teams in all codes at all levels. The Kilkenny branch of the Gaelic Athletic Association was founded in 1887.
In hurling, the dominant sport in the county, Kilkenny compete annually in the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship, which they have won thirty-four times, the Leinster Senior Hurling Championship, which they have won sixty-eight times, and the National Hurling League, which they have won fifteen times. Kilkenny is the most successful hurling county. Brian Cody has been manager of the Kilkenny senior hurling team since the 1999 championship. The 2012 senior hurling captain is Eoin Larkin.
