Kehoe Cup & Shield (2003-2022)

Kehoe Competition

The Kehoe Cup is an annual Hurling competition organised by the Leinster Council. It is one of three competitions in Leinster (O’Byrne Cup, Walsh Cup & Kehoe Cup) which are all ‘Accident Tournaments’, where the proceeds go towards assisting injured GAA members. The Kehoe Cup began in 1977 with tier 2 and tier 3 inter-county hurling teams taking part (Walsh Cup is for Tier 1 hurling teams). The Kehoe Shield was introduced alongside the Kehoe Cup in 2009 as a secondary competition for teams who lost the first round of the Kehoe Cup. The Shield was not held from 2015 to 2018, and was revived in 2019 as a separate competition from the Kehoe Cup, specifically for weaker teams. The competition was sponsored by Bord na Móna from 2012 to 2023, and by Dioralyte from 2024.
