The Leinster Junior Club Hurling Championship is an annual hurling tournament played between the hundreds of Junior hurling clubs in Leinster. Each of the 12 counties in the province will provide one team. In most cases that will be the winner of the Junior Hurling Championship in that county. In the case of countries that are of a lower standard, they may nominate winners of their Intermediate or Senior Hurling Championship. The winners of this competition will represent the province of Leinster in the semi-finals of the All-Ireland Junior Club Hurling Championship.

The current (2019) Leinster Junior Club Hurling champions are Conahy Shamrocks of Kilkenny who beat Ballygarrett of Wexford in the final.

A separate Leinster Special Junior Club Championship which included the Junior Champions of Meath, Kildare, Carlow and Offaly as well as the senior champions of Louth and Longford was discontinued after the 2015 competition. The 2015 champions were Ballypickas of Laois who beat Broadford of Kildare in the final.
