September 19, 2021 0 By HearthstoneYarns

RONAN MCCARTHY HAS made four changes to his starting XV as Cork prepare for their final outing in this year’s All-Ireland SFC when they face Roscommon on Sunday [throw-in 4pm].

Goalkeeper Micheál Martin, James Loughrey, Eoghan McSweeney and Paul Kerrigan all come in, with Mark White, Liam O’Donovan, Tomas Clancy and Brian Hurley dropping out of the side.

Cork lost to Dublin and Tyrone in their opening two Super 8s games, meaning any chances of making the All-Ireland semi-finals are gone ahead of their final championship game this summer.

Roscommon are also out of contention having also lost to Tyrone on the opening weekend of the quarter-finals, before falling to an 18-point defeat to the All-Ireland champions two weeks ago.

Sunday’s game has been moved from Páirc Uí Rinn, with work currently underway on a new pitch is to be installed at Páirc Ui Chaoimh in time for the 2020 Allianz Leagues.
