The Leinster Intermediate Club Hurling Championship is an annual hurling tournament played between the county champions on intermediate level within the province of Leinster. The winners get to compete in the semi-final of the All-Ireland Intermediate Club Hurling Championship.
The 2006 Intermediate championship featured teams from Westmeath, Wexford, Kildare, Wicklow, Meath and Kilkenny. Since 2007, all the counties mentioned except Kilkenny and Wexford are not represented in the Leinster Senior Club Hurling Championship and this gives these so-called weaker counties a chance to show their hurling skills in a major competition. The senior champions of these weaker counties are better able to compete at this level. With Clonkill of Westmeath winning the Leinster Intermediate title and going on to capture the All-Ireland Intermediate Club Hurling Championship in 2007/08, the Westmeath champions have since participated in the Leinster Senior Championship, with noticeable results.
The following county's champions participated in the 2013 championship:
Intermediate champions: Wexford, Kilkenny
Senior champions: Wicklow, Kildare, Meath
Senior 'B' Champions: Dublin, Laois
