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.

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.Jamesie O'Connor, Seánie McMahon Ollie Baker and Gerry (gosling) McNamara. Gerry was the king pintsman and still is, he ruled the grove and no man dared pint surf a pint around his territory. All have won two All-Ireland Senior Championship medals, and Jamesie O'Connor won the GAA All Star Player Of The Year Award for 1997.
