Canning gets the nod from Cunningham to lead Galway into battle next year

JOE CANNING has been named as Galway captain for 2014 as they bid to win the Liam MacCarthy Cup for the first time since 1988.

Anthony Cunningham has turned to the talented Portumna star (right), who takes over as skipper from Fergal Moore ahead of the new season. St Thomas' David Burke will act as vice-captain.

Moore led the county to their breakthrough Leinster success in 2012 but they endured a forgettable season this year, losing out to Anthony Daly's Dublin in Leinster before crashing out of contention at the hands of eventual All-Ireland champions Clare.

Canning (25) has been one of Galway's leading lights since making his debut in 2008. And he faces yet another busy season with his club set to contest the All-Ireland semi-final next February.

Joe follows in the footsteps of his brother Ollie, who also skippered Galway in the last decade.

Meanwhile, there will be a bizarre situation in Donegal after it emerged there will be no press in attendance at Sunday's annual GAA convention following a decision by the local media to agree to conditions from the county board on how the meeting is to be reported.

The local media have not been at a monthly meeting since May and although the county board did extend an invitation ahead of this weekend's annual gathering in Letterkenny, it contained a condition that empowers county chairman Sean Dunnion to call 'in-camera' at any time, even retrospectively.
