Lar Corbett has been coaxed back to the Tipperary senior hurling panel, just three short months after he sensationally announced his decision to withdraw from the squad.
Back then the 2010 Hurler of the Year cited 'work and business commitments' for his reason to drop out.
He runs Coppinger's Bar in Thurles and also recently turned his hand to concert promoting.
But with the Championship season now upon, the star forward will be back in harness challenging for a starting place in the Tipp team to face Limerick on Sunday, May 27.
A short statement released by Tipperary GAA today said: "Tipperary senior hurling manager Declan Ryan and the Tipperary County Board are pleased to announce the return of Lar Corbett to the Tipp senior hurling panel.
"Over the last few months Lar has been heavily involved in developing his business activities and is now once again in a position to give the necessary commitment to being a member of the panel. Lar will recommence training with the panel immediately."
It is a huge boost for Ryan to have a player of Corbett's calibre at his disposal, with the Munster SHC quarter-final against Limerick drawing ever closer.
The 31-year-old famously scored a hat-trick of goals in the 2010 All-Ireland final win over Kilkenny and has two All-Star awards to his name.
His return to inter-county hurling would suggest he has had a change of heart in recent days.
In a newspaper interview a fortnight ago, Corbett stated: "I have had the best days of my life hurling for Tipperary and it has been strange not being in there with the lads these past couple of months.
"I got so much out of hurling and I would like to think that I gave my best back to it. I had no choice - for business reasons - but to take time away from the game and I am giving my all to the business end of my life right now."
