Mulligan has returned to Melvin Gaels after four years in the capital playing for St Brigid’s, the 2011 Dublin senior champions.

The inter-county player made the move in December 2012 but it has now been confirmed that he has switched back to his home club, with the transfer officially rubber-stamped yesterday by the GAA.

Mulligan hit 0-6 last Sunday for the Leitrim senior footballers in Carrick-on-Shannon as they lost 0-16 to 0-14 against Wexford in Division 4 of the Allianz football league.

The previous Sunday, he hit 0-3 in Leitrim’s 2017 league opener when they defeated Wicklow 1-17 to 0-10 in Aughrim.

Mulligan has been one of Leitrim’s best players since making his debut in 2008, scoring 0-10 against Galway in that championship season.

He suffered a cruciate injury in 2009 before taking a year out from the inter-county game in 2015, playing for the Donegal club in Boston that summer.

Last season Mulligan returned to sction with Leitrim, posting 0-3 in their Connacht defeat to Roscommon, kicking 0-3 in their All-Ireland qualifier win over Waterford and hitting 0-3 when they exited the championship against Sligo.
