Some good news rung out from the recent government announcements.
We have been given the green light for group training in pods of 15 from Monday 26th April for underage teams.
One step in these preparations is to have members registered and in particular playing members. Players of all ages will need to be registered with the GAA via the Club to allow participation in activities and to complete health questionnaires as part of the ‘Return to Play’ protocol.
The GAA has introduced a new on-line system which provides for self-service membership registration and payment for individuals and families. The system is called Foireann, which is Irish for Team, and can be accessed via the Club website or type into your internet browser.
Members who set up a ‘ReturnToPlay’ account in 2020 to complete the Health Questionnaires can access their Foireann account by using the same logon id and password as used last year. If you don’t have a ReturnToPlay account then you can register a new account very easily on Foireann. Go to and follow the instructions for New users. If you go to the Club website or Club’s social media accounts further information is provided and if you encounter any difficulties contact Crotta club registrar Shane Herbert 0872890087.


Following the Government announcement, we hope to resume non-contact underage training in pods of 15 from Wednesday April 28th.
