Cork GAA remembers Christy Ring on centenary of his birth

October 30, 2020

Mick Mackey has those famous words with Cork's Christy Ring during the 1957 Munster SHC semi final. Mackey was doing umpire and Ring was forced to leave the field with an injury.

Today marks the 100-year anniversary of Cork hurling legend Christy Ring’s birth.

The eight-time All-Ireland winner, who passed away on March 2, 1979, is still today widely regarded as one of the greatest hurlers to ever play the game.

Cork GAA posted a fitting tribute on its website this morning to remember Ring on the centenary of his birth.
