Join the GAA action this summer and manage your own Fantasy team...

With championship season finally here, now is your chance to show your GAA knowledge. Fantasy Gaelic is back and has leagues set up for every club in the world to allow you challenge your clubmates and find your 2014 club champion.

Fantasy Gaelic is a simple game that allows you pick your 15 top players that will compete for you throughout the summer. There are host of great prizes that can be won both individually and for your club – all players compete within their clubs but also for their club in our Irish and Overseas club championships.

We are running our own SINDO league with great prizes and players can join now by selecting Sunday Independent in the county Dublin. Tickets to the 2014 All Stars, a weekend break at the Croke Park Hotel and a club training session with a top inter-county star await the SINDO league winner.

Teams of the week and the the county player leaderboard will be published weekly to keep you updated on this exciting game, the top performers and leading players.

Donegal's Neil Gallagher is the 2013 champion – having narrowly beaten Mayo's Enda Varley, Fermanagh's Brian Cox and Wexford's Graeme Molly in last years county player league.

Former Kildare player and current Waterford selector Ronan Sweeney, Longford's Enda WIlliams and rising Sligo star Niall Murphy all had respectable top 10 finishes with Meath's Bryan Menton and Wexford's Brian Malone just outside the top 10.

Join in the GAA action by selecting the stars of the game to compete for you and your club – and enjoy every score your players rack up for you in scores, appearances and man of the match performances.

The game is open to all players and is free to play. It is your chance to prove your GAA credentials and to manage your own team of inter-county stars to compete for All-Ireland glory.
