Detailed instructions for existing Foireann accounts:


Detailed instructions are outlined below, but the most common issue for existing players is that their date of birth is missing (because this was not a field on the original "return to play" system).

If this is the case …. Log in, go to “family”, THEN edit, add date of birth (plus any other required info) and press "save" at the bottom of the screen.


STEP 1: LOGIN to FOIREANN   

Resetting your password
If you need to reset your password you can do so through Foireann. Please note, you may have a username that is different than your email. It depends how you set up your account originally.

If resetting your password isn't working for you:
try using the "forgot username". This will prompt you to enter your email ….. you may have used your work / gmail / hotmail address. When you receive your username, you can reset your password.

If your family has more than one Foireann account, pick the most complete one and ensure all the children are included on this account.

Don't worry about adding a second adult for the moment. It's a bit convoluted, we will issue separate guidelines in due course.


STEP 2 : Check that you are LINKED to BANTRY BLUES in your PROFILE

Click on the "profile" link* from the main menu
You should be mapped to "Bantry Blues- Cork- GAA/LGFA"
You may also update other details such as postal address, photo consent etc.  
 
*on a 
mobile device, you may have to click on the "three bars" on the top left of your screen to access the links  


STEP 3 : Have you set up your "Family" on FOIREANN (if applicable ) 

Click on the "Family" link* from the main menu  ( in left hand panel ) 

*on a mobile device, you may have to click on the "three bars" on the top left of your screen to access the link 

STEP 4:  ( if applicable ) Are any family members missing/ duplicated  ?

Please note there are three sections within the family page, which you can scroll to :

Parents/guardians
Children
Additional People

You must check that all of your children covered by your family membership are included on the Foireann account now.

To add a child to your account

Log in to Foireann / Family / Add child.

You must then “edit” the child to add their date of birth, photo consent etc.

Pleas note: you need to have already created your "family" (STEP 3 above) to add a child.

• You can remove duplicates from any of the sections.
 
• You can add an additional parent/guardian (free of charge) to the account. We will provide guidance on this in due course.

STEP 5 : Are players linked to the correct Team/s ?

The easiest way to fix this is by logging in on a desktop / tablet.


  • Check with your child's coach the exact name of the team your child plays with
  • Log in to Foireann and select teams
  • "untick" the "My Teams Only" if this is displaying on the filter
  • Scroll through the revised list and select the team your child belongs to
  • Click on "view team"
  • Click on "add player"
  • Select the child from your account to be added
  • Click "add"
  • Repeat if necessary e.g. if your daughter plays both LGFA  OR you son plays both football & hurling.
  • If you can't see the team that your child plays with, double check on a desktop. Then contact the team head coach and ask him /her what is the correct name of team which your child should be linked to
