1990's

  • 1991 was a historic year for Corofin GAA Club, both on and off the field, with the winning of the Intermediate Hurling Championship for the first time and the official opening of Páirc Finne. Corofin defeated St. Josephs Doora-Barefield in the Intermediate Hurling final, with Seán O'Loughlin giving an outstanding performance at full-forward. Captain on this historic day was John Malone.
  • Further success followed in 1992 when Corofin won the Mid-Clare Junior Championship.
  • The Junior 'B' Hurling League was won in 1993, with Corofin beating Ruan in the final on a scoreline of 2-8 to 1-3. Willie Corbett and Thomas O'Loughlin were the management team.

  • Corofin, captained by Robert Hurley, captured the U-21 'B' Football Championship in 1994.
  • In 1995, under the stewardship of Michael Neylon, the Senior Football team went all the way to the semi-final of the senior championship, where they were beaten by Ennis Faughs (an amalgamation of Eire Óg and Doora-Barefield).
  • The senior football team during the 1990's were a well drilled and well organised outfit, but they were unfortunate to lose out in the first round to the eventual county champions in 1993 (Kilmurray Ibrickane) and in 1997 (Cooraclare).

  • Páirc Finne was officially opened on May 5th 1991. The site was originally purchased in 1984 and  began to take shape gradually over the years due to great efforts by the then field committee and local fundraising ventures. Members of the field commitee included Jim Harmon, Tommy O'Loughlin,John Malone, John Kelleher, James Shannon, Gerard Kennedy, Noel Williams, Joe O'Connell, John Williams and Paul Sanders.
