Registration / How to join

Registration for 2021 is now open!

For 2021, the GAA and LGFA have introduced a new registration system called 'Foireann', which adds a number of new capabilities to what you as a member can do, regarding your club membership.

As well as supporting registration, it will also provide a secure messaging platform for team and training communication, and if you are a parent with children in the club, it will allow you to check their team membership, get access to training and match schedules, and much more.

Please note: If you played trained or football in 2020, or if your children trained or played football in 2020, you will have registered for the 'returntoplay.gaa.ie' system, in order to submit regular Covid19 health questionnaires). This is now also part of the new 'Foireann' system, so please use the same username and password details when using 'Foireann'.
