Skerries will be the location for Alan Brogan's low-key return to Dublin colours this weekend.

It was prematurely reported that Brogan (33) was set to retire after Dublin's All-Ireland semi-final defeat, something he was forced to immediately deny.

Brogan re-joined the panel last week after manager Jim Gavin said both parties were happy for the double All-Ireland winner would sit out the early part of the season.

"The plan for a long time has been that Alan (would) join us after the normal rounds of the National League," he said.

The Dublin boss has confirmed that Brogan, who has continued to line out with his club St Oliver Plunkett-Eoghan Ruadh, will feature in a challenge game against Galway this Sunday.

Brogan will embark on his 14th season at inter-county level as the Dubs gear up for a National League Final against Cork on Sunday week.
