MONAGHAN MANAGER MALACHY O’Rourke has made three personnel changes in the starting team named to take on Down in the Ulster SFC quarter-final in Clones on Sunday (throw-in 2pm).

Shane Carey and Owen Duffy come into the reigning Ulster champions’ forward line, meaning Daniel McKenna drops to the bench despite his goal in the final game of the league campaign.

Karl O’Connell is named in the half back line, edging Fintan Kelly out of the starting 15.

Vinny Corey and Niall McAdam trade places at midfield and centre back and Kieran Hughes also moves to midfield from half forward.
