Clare will feature in the All-Ireland football quarter-finals for the first time following a 2-12 to 1-09 Rd 4A Qualifier win over Roscommon.
The Banner County, who qualified for the semi-final directly in 1992 as Munster champions, will meet Kerry in the last eight next Sunday at Croke Park after completing a six-point victory over the Rossies at Pearse Stadium, Salthill.
David Tubridy and Jamie Malone netted first-half goals to give Clare a 2-06 to 0-07 half-time lead, with Roscommon, perhaps still suffering the hangover of last week's 11-point Connacht final replay defeat to Galway, second to every 50-50 ball.
Minutes into the second half, Clare's Cathal O'Connor was shown a straight red for a high tackle on Niall Daly, but it was soon 14 against 14 when Sean Mullooly was shown a second yellow, and a red card, 10 minutes into the second half.
And two minutes later, Roscommon reduced the deficit to just three points when Enda Smith finished past with a hand pass over Clare goalkeeper Joe Hayes from the angle.
But Clare kept their nerve and closed out the victory against 13 men, following David Murray's injury-time red card for Roscommon, to set up a Croke Park meeting with Kerry on 31 July in a in a repeat of the Munster semi-final.
