GAA Hurling Christy Ring Cup (Division 2 All Ireland) 2011 [Ref: 2]


Kerry beat Wicklow 2-21 to 2-08 in the 2011 Christy Ring Cup Final. They had defeated Kildare and Meath in Rounds 1 and 2, before triumphing by a point over Down in the Semi-Finals.

Eight counties were eligible for the Christy Ring Cup (Division 2 All Ireland Hurling) in 2011, three from Ulster (Down, Derry and Armagh), three from Leinster (Kildare, Meath and Wicklow) and one each from Connacht (Mayo) and Munster (Kerry).


The Christy Ring Cup is the Tier 2 All-Ireland County Championship in Hurling, named after the great Cork player.

From its inception to 2018 it was a Double-Elimination Cup (dubbed the “Back Door” by the Press) and in 2019 was changed to two groups of 4, playing a Single Round-Robin with Semi-Finals & Final.
