Barna United FC was set up in 1996 with approx. 15 under 8s, who mainly trained on a Saturday morning in the Bearna National School hall.
The club was re-organised in 1999, and has grown consistently through the years - now we have upwards on 300 players. The Club has been a player in the Galway and District League since the 2004/05 season.
The Club boasts teams that participate also in Connacht and Irish Cups from Under 11 up to Under 18 age groups and, starting from 2010, the club has its own adult team competing in the Galway and District League and Irish and Connacht Cups. From Under 10 down to Under 7's the club players partake in various development leagues and mini blitz's with other clubs where the emphases is on development, participation
The club has at its core a strong community based ethos and draws members from the greater Bearna/Na Forbacha area, and its environs. The club is unique in that all its officers and team coaches are parents of the players of the club. The clubs motto 'to bring out the best' is based on the desire to bring out the best in all of its players no matter what age, gender or ability of the individual.
In 2010 the Club had a name change to that on the geographical spread of the club members and also due to the restarting of an adult team which previously was based and call ‘Na Forbacha'. The new name is Bearna Na Forbacha Aontaine.
