Paul McComiskey is set to return to the Down squad after a brief break from inter-county football.

The Dundrum forward was not available for his county's matches in the McKenna Cup and in the early stages of the National Football League.

McComiskey, a member of the team narrowly beaten by Cork in the 2010 All-Ireland final, has been in touch with the Down management.

He is expected back in a few weeks, the Irish News reported on Tuesday.

Down, who lost heavily away to Cork in their last Division One game, are at home to Kerry on Sunday, 4 March.

Kerry are also aiming to bounce back, after losing to Armagh last time out.
