Christy Ring: the man whose immense talent and indomitable spirit are the stuff of a legend.
At senior level he played his first game for Cork in 1939 and his last game in 1962.
It was such displays that cast Ring into the realm of a legend.
It's a line that has echoed through the generations.
His name lives in hurling history and the City of Cork honoured him by naming a bride across the River Lee The Christy Ring Bridge. After recent county final triumphs, the Glen team walked the Seán Óg Murphy Cup across that bridge.
Fitting words to an incredible hurling artist!
Christy Ring is the holder of eight Senior All-Ireland medals.
He scored an incredible six goals and four points against Wexford in a National League game of 1959.
Ring won a total of 14 Cork Senior County hurling championship medals with Glen Rovers.
Christy Ring died in March 2 1979 at the age of just 58, which shocked GAA fans on Leeside and beyond.
Outside of his club and county successes he amassed a total of 18 Railway Cup medals from 1942 to 1963.
