Introduction to Foireann
Over the winter, the GAA has moved all its data collection portals into one streamlined system, Foireann. It is the first time that the GAA has brought all its associations under one umbrella, namely GAA, LGFA, Camogie and Handball associations.
Foireann can be used by members of the above organisations to process Return to Play health declarations, membership payments and sharing of information relating to teams within a club. The vast majority of Bredagh playing members will already have a username and password to Foireann from their use of the Return to Play facility during the 2020 season.
Foireann can be accessed through www.foireann.ie and entering your username and password. On entry to the site you will see a list of options on the left hand side of the screen.
Updating Your Profile
In order to make the most of the Foireann, you will need to update your profile using the tabs on the left-hand side of the screen. The system is user friendly and the more information you include from the outset, the more adaptive it will be going forward.
Complete the basic details as requested, much of it will already be in place from your Return to Play data from last season.
Remember to include all relevant medical information, which may be needed in case of emergency. This information will only be visible to members of the Executive Committee who use it as part of their specific roles, e.g. Children’s Officer or Health and Safety Officer etc
The most important part of this section is to align your profile with Bredagh, which can be done by using the drop down menus.
Finally, tick all relevant boxes relating to communications you wish to receive from the club during the year. Note that if you do not give permission for Club Communications, you accept that you will not receive information relating to the AGM by email.
Completing this section correctly is vital if you wish to take out a family membership with the club. It is your responsibility to ensure that each member of your family has a Foireann account and that you have linked your family together.
When you move forward to complete your family membership, it can only be done by pre-populating information you have already provided to the system.

Your events section should be empty at this stage of the season but later on in the year, it can be used by Head Coaches to update players and parents regarding upcoming events for a particular team.
In order to assist the club to provide you with relevant information for you and your family, you should enter yourself and/or members of your family to the correct teams for the 2021 season.
This can be done by simply selecting all teams and choosing the correct team from the list. Once you have paid your membership, you will receive updates through Foireann of any events planned for your team.
Once all the above has been completed you are now in a position to set up your membership for the 2021 season. In line with the Club Constitution, the membership fees were struck at the 2020 AGM. All membership options and fees are available below.
If you are unsure which membership option applies to you, please contact the club registrar on email firstname.lastname@example.org before proceeding. Use the following guidance to help you complete the process.

Return to Play
We do appreciate the delayed start to the season is a disappointment for all but our club committee and coaching teams are in place and are working hard to ensure our season is as full and fun-packed as we can possibly make it.
We ask for your support in processing membership as quickly as possible, thereby ensuring we can support any technical issues which may arise.
