The decision to move the location of the fixture was taken at 9am this morning and Roscommon GAA released this statement.
"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.”
Roscommon GAA have since offered complimentary travel to the new venue due to the inconvenience.
