Meath won the GAA Hurling Christy Ring Cup in 2019, defeating Down 4-19 (31 Points) to 2-15 (21 Points) in the Final. The 2019 Christy Ring Cup was played in Group format followed by Semi-Finals and Final for the first time, with Down and Meath topping the two groups and joined in the Semi-Finals by Derry and Roscommon. Down, however, needed points differential to win Group A, having tied on 4 Points with boty Derry and Wicklow. Meath had an easier run in Group B, with convincing wins over London and Kildare, and a narrower win over Roscommon. Donegal, bottom of Group A, lost the Relegation playoff to London.

About Hurling

Hurling is an ancient Gaelic Irish Sport, and one of the four Charter GAA Sports of 1884. It is played with a Hurl or Hurley (stick) and a sliotar (ball) and is one of the fastest team sports in the world. It is 15-a-side and Goals (worth 3 points) are scored as well as points (over the bar – worth one point). It is organised on a Club and County basis like most GAA Sports and has County, Provncial and All-Ireland Championships. Within both Club and County Championships there is the Hurling League (usually run over winter) and the Hurling Championship (usually run over summer). There are about 12 Top Level (Division 1) Counties that play for the Liam McCarthy Cup, as well as the Christy Ring Cup (Division 2), and Nicky Rackard (Division 3) and Lory Meaghar Cups (Division 4). Outside of Ireland there are 14 Counties that also play Gaelic Football and sometimes Hurling, with London, Warwickshire and Lancashire taking part in the lower levels of the All-Ireland Championships. The Christy Ring Cup is the Level 2 All-Ireland County Championship in Hurling, named after the great Cork player.
