Kerry won the 2015 Christy Ring Cup, defeating Derry by 1-20 (23 Points) to 0-12 (12 Points) in the Final. They had earlier defeated Down and Meath, and had a comprehensive victory over Kildare in the Semi-Finals (6-27 to 0-9).

In all eight counties were eligible for the Christy Ring Cup (Division 2 All Ireland Hurling) – 3 from Leinster (Kildare, Meath and Wicklow), two each from Connacht (Mayo and Roscommon) and Ulster (Down and Derry) and one from 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.
