After missing out on Championship action for Galway last summer, Johnny Glynn will return to the fold this year - that is despite continuing to live in New York.
The Irish Independent's Michael Verney reports that Glynn will be recalled to the Galway set up by manager Micheál Donoghue.
Glynn is home at the moment to play for his club Ardrahan in the Galway SHC. He will train with the Galway panel on Monday night before returning to New York later in the week.
The 23-year-old left for the US following Galway's loss to Kilkenny in the 2015 All-Ireland hurling final.
Last summer, he played for the New York footballers in their Connacht Championship game against Roscommon. A game in which Roscommon suffered a real scare, winning by just a point.
Glynn would emulate former Galway hurler Gerry McInerney by living in the US and travelling home to play for his county. The dream would be to do so and, like McInerney, win two All-Ireland medals.
Glynn, a real physical presence on the half-forward line in 2015, will be a welcome return to the Galway panel.
