WEXFORD WERE THE victims in May when Carlow made that early season splash in Leinster to set up a notable quarter-final tie against Dublin.

Now Banty McEnaney’s side start their route to recovery on Saturday afternoon with a trip to the Gaelic Grounds for an opening All-Ireland football qualifier against Limerick.

They’ve made three changes from the team that lost out to Carlow by 2-17 to 2-13.

Shane Roche returns between the posts while in attack there are starting berths handed to wing-forward Tiarnan Rossiter and corner-forward Conor Carty.

Conor Swaine and John Tubritt drop to the bench while Colm Kehoe is ruled out through injury.

Throw-in on Saturday afternoon is 3pm.
