The Republic of Ireland Under-21s flew out to Switzerland today having had to make four changes to their squad.

Striker Cillian Sheridan has been drafted into the senior party for their Euro 2012 qualifiers in Armenia and at home to Andorra, while Stephen Gleeson (back), James McCarthy (knee) and Aaron Doran (ankle) have all been ruled out.

Their places have been taken by Adam Rooney (Inverness), Richie Towell (Celtic), Graham Carey (Huddersfield) and Robbie Brady (Manchester United).

Rooney and Carey have 12 Under-21 caps between them, but Towell and Brady, who have represented their country at Under-19 level, but are yet to do so for the older age group team.

Ireland face Switzerland on Friday before taking on Turkey next Tuesday.
