Christy Ring - Tributes


  • A film about Ring's life was produced by Gael-Linn in 1964 and Val Dorgan wrote his biography in 1981, both works entitled "Christy Ring".
  • He has also been commemorated by a life-size statue in his native village of Cloyne, and the "Christy Ring Bridge" over the River Lee in Cork remembers his achievements. One of Cork city’s principal GAA stadia, Páirc Uí Rinn (Ring Park in English), is named in his honour.
