New Club

Before a new LGFA club can get setup on Foireann to register their members they must complete a New Club Application Form (link to position on website). The club then forwarded this form to their County Board and the County Board ratifies the club at a County Board meeting.

Once the new club is ratified, the Co. Secretary forward the details and form to the LGFA.


After the club is ratified and the County Board has informed the LGFA, the National Registrar will request the club to be setup on the Foireann system. Once this is completed the national registrar will email the Club Secretary and Registrar.


Setting up a Foireann Account

To begin your journey with Foireann, it’s essential to register your details if you haven’t already. This process ensures that you have a personalized account and can enjoy the full benefits of the platform. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to register, verify your email address, and complete your profile.

Adding Clubs and Counties to your Foireann Profile

You can add multiply Clubs and Counties to your Foireann Profile and then within the Membership tab you can access each.

On the Profile page go down to the bottom and select add club.

Association = LGFA

County Board = Select your County

Club = Select your Club


If you are a County Administrator or a County Player, you go to Profile page and go down to the bottom and select add club.

County Board = Select your County

Club = Select your County again (County)


Likewise, if you are not involved with a Club or County anymore, i.e. you were a Coach/Selector and have moved on to another Club/County you can remove* that account from your Foireann Membership tab.


* Please note, if you are moving from a club to another (subject to meeting all rules and regulations), you should complete your registration with the new club before removing your old club from your profile so that all your membership history is together.

Stage 2 – is the completion of the LGFA registration by the club registrar/admin. Once your members have registered with your club, you are required to pay the registration fees to your County, Province and the National LGFA Association.

Paying LGFA Registration Fees to the County, Province and Association – Gaelic Athletic Association (

This same process is required for Camogie members, but GAA members don’t have this process as their registration goes straight to a Green (fully registered chip without this step).



Awaiting Approval from the LGFA

At this stage, you have completed all administrative tasks to register the member(s) selected. The LGFA now must review and approve the registrations.

Registrations are approved in the morning, around 2pm and then again before 5pm.


Please note a member is not registered until the approval is completed and the membership changes to Green on the Foireann system.


Registrations are approved between Monday and Friday from 9am to 5pm.

Anything after 5pm is approved the following day.

If registration is not completed by a club to a Friday night, then it will be Monday morning or Tuesday after a bank holiday before it is approved.


The above help documents are only the minimum required for a club to setup and complete registrations, please review all help documents within each section of the Foireann Help Portal.
