Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Corofin (Irish: Cora Finne) is a village on the River Fergus in northern County Clare in Ireland, situated 12 km (7 mi) north from the county town of Ennis at the crossroads of the R470 and R476 regional roads. It is on the southern edge of the upland limestone region of The Burren. Also known as "The Gateway to the Burren" or "The Angler's Paradise," Corofin is the birthplace of renowned Irish painter Frederick William Burton. The name Corofin means the white or foam-flecked ford from the Irish "Finn Coradh," the earliest form of the name to be found in the literature: "fearann re hucht Finn Coradh."-[ hUidhr n, 15c.
