Hurlers Cross (Irish: Cros an Iománaí) is a small village in County Clare, situated close to Shannon Town and 6 km from both Sixmilebridge and Newmarket-on-Fergus. It forms a part of Newmarket-on-Fergus parish.
The name is derived from the meeting of three roads: to Shannon, Ennis and Limerick. The last named is now closed off at the western end of the village, following the opening of a dual-carriageway bypass (N18/N19) serving the Limerick to Ennis route, which has taken away the heavy traffic that was once a feature of Hurlers Cross.
