Sean Mullooly will line out at full-back for Roscommon in today's Connacht SFL clash with Sligo at Hyde Park.
The Strokestown clubman, who manned the centre back position when the Rossies claimed the Connacht championship in 2017, took the decision to opt out of the county set-up last year in order to travel.
His return is a boost for new manager Anthony Cunningham who has seen several players turn down the chance to join the squad, while fellow defender Seanie McDermott recently retired.
