We consider a singularly perturbed system with a normally hyperbolic centre manifold. Assuming the existence of a fast homoclinic orbit to a point of the centre manifold belonging to a hyperbolic periodic solution for the slow system, we prove an old and a new result concerning the existence of solutions of the singularly perturbed system that are homoclinic to a periodic solution of the system on the centre manifold. We also give examples in dimensions greater than three of Sil'nikov [16] periodic-to-periodic homoclinic orbits.
