The Bord na Móna O'Byrne Cup is a Gaelic football competition organised by the Leinster GAA. The competition is named after Matt O'Byrne, a former Wicklow GAA club officer. Participants include the twelve county teams and four colleges. The current O'Byrne Cup champions are Kildare, who beat Dublin in the final by a scoreline of 1-16 to 0-17. The O'Byrne Shield was introduced for teams knocked out of the first stage of the Cup but was later abandoned in 2013 due to the introduction of group stages in the competition.
The O'Byrne Shield is an inter county competition between the losers of the first round of the O'Byrne Cup. The competition began in 2006 with Longford winning in the final. The 2007 final was contested by Longford and Athlone IT and Longford won the game on a scoreline of 2-10 to 1-7, while the 2008 title was awarded to Laois after the competition was never completed. The O'Byrne Shield ended as a competition prior to the 2013 season and will no longer be played due to the group stages of the O'Byrne Cup which gives each team a minimum of 3 matches.
