History[edit]

Hurling was the more popular sport in Barefield over Gaelic football, now it's 50-50 between the both of them. There are two main Hurling fields, Gurteen and Roslevan. In Gurteen there are three full size hurling and football pitches. There is also changing and showering facilities there.

The Ennis Faughs were an amalgamation of the club with local rivals Éire Óg, Ennis. They competed together from 1944-1956 and 1994-1996 when both clubs were not actually competing at senior level themselves.

Notable players[edit]

Some of Clare GAA's greatest players have played for St Joseph's, many of which played with the iconic 1995 All Ireland winning team. These include Jamesie O'Connor, Seánie McMahon and Ollie Baker. All have won two All-Ireland Senior Championship medals,Seánie McMahon and Jamesie O'Connor won the GAA All Star Player Of The Year Award for 1995 and 1997 respectively.
