Rush left-arm seamer Alex Neary has been drafted into the Ireland U19 World Cup Qualifier squad.

He is a late replacement for Pembroke's Gavin Hoey who has withdrawn with a back injury.

Ireland fly to the Netherlands this week when they are one of six sides vying for a World Cup slot at the tournament in South Africa next year.

They face the hosts, Scotland, Denmark, Jersey and France in the round-robin tournament.
