O'Flanagan was recently named player of the tournament at the FIH Series event in Banbridge and Muckross say it's a coup to attract the experienced Ireland international to the club.
"The club are delighted to be welcoming Anna back to her school grounds of Muckross Park College as she joins the Muckross Magic.
"With 180 international caps to her name, Anna will be using her vast experience and world class skills to further develop this young, ambitious and talented team."
Simon Pearson will remain as Muckross' head-coach for a second season and they say he'll be "instrumental in achieving the team’s goals, as well as identifying and developing breakthrough talent".
