The game had been scheduled for Dr Hyde Park but a decision to move the location of the fixture was taken at 9am after the pitch was deemed unplayable.

In an effort to accommodate fans, Roscommon have organised bus transfers to the new venue.

Roscommon GAA released a statement early on Sunday morning apologising for the late decision.

There was a pitch inspection carried out on Dr Douglas Hyde Park Roscommon today at 9am.

The referee felt that the pitch was unplayable and as a result Roscommon GAA has moved the match to Pairc Sean in Carrick on Shannon throw in at 2pm.

We apologise for the short notice however Roscommon GAA have been working very hard to ensure that Hyde Park was ready for the arrival of the League And All Ireland Champions. We will have more details presently.”
