The series of games are played during the autumn and winter months with the county final currently being played in December. The championship has always been played on a straight knockout basis whereby once a team loses they are eliminated from the series.

The winning club in the Kilkenny IFC progresses to the Leinster Intermediate Club Football Championship, the winners of which compete for the All-Ireland Intermediate Club Football Championship.

The title has been won at least once by seventeen different clubs. The all-time record-holders are Barrow Rangers, Piltown, Mullinavat, Kilmoganny and Thomastown, who have all won the competition twice.

Conahy Shamrocks are the current (2017) title-holders after defeating Rower-Inistioge 1-08 to 0-08 in the final.
