2012 marked the 40th annual Kilmacud Crokes All-Ireland Hurling Sevens competition, held on the Saturday of the All-Ireland Hurling Championship Final weekend, with 3 competitions at Senior, Shield and u13 level. The very first Kilmacud All-Ireland Hurling Sevens was in 1973. A total of 28 teams entered the inaugural tournament and the last two standing were Buffers Alley of Wexford, backboned by the legendary Tony Doran and St Finbarrs of Cork, themselves stocked with All-Ireland medal holders. The Wexford men were victorious by a point and this was the first of three Wexford wins on the trot.
In 2012, Mullagh of Galway beat fellow county men Gort in the Senior Final (for more click HERE and HERE), while the Shield final saw victory for Éire Óg, Corra Choill (Kildare) over Eoghan Rua of Dungannon (for more click HERE). In the U13 Final Clarinbridge beat Douglas (for more click HERE).
Just prior to the start of the 2012 One Direct Kilmacud Crokes All Ireland Hurling Sevens Senior final, previous winners were presented to the large and enthusiastic crowd at Páirc de Burca in Glenalbyn. At a special function later in the evening, each Captain - or representative - was presented with a special commemorative medal and pennant, together with a copy of the excellent chronicle of the history of the Sevens, edited by Tom Barry.

In 2011, 40 senior clubs from ten counties competed for the much coveted Cup in the Senior competition and 16 teams battled for the Shield. The winners of the senior competition were Kildangan of Tipperary who needed extra-time to beat the hosts Kilmacud Crokes 5-14 to 3-16 in a thrilling final. Setanta (Donegal) won the Shield Competition, playing Eoghan Rua (Dungannon) in the final, with a score-line of 3-8 to 3-5. The future of hurling was on display in the u13 competition with Sarsfields (Cork) holding off James Stephens (Kilkenny) (2-7 to 1-1) to win that hotly contested competition.
