London won the 2012 Christy Ring Cup (Division 2 All Ireland Hurling) by beating wicklow by 4-18 (30 Points) to 1-17 (20 Points) in the Final, thus consigning the South Leinstermen to their second Christy Ring Cup Final defeat in a row.
London had earlier defeated Mayo, Derry, and Down in a Semi-Final Replay after losing to Meath in the first Round, taking the difficult route to the winners medals. Wicklow had knocked Meath out in the Semi-Finals.
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.
