Lar Corbett Withdraws From Tipperary Panel

Three-time GAA All Star and Tipperary’s mainstay, since he made his Championship debut in 2001, Lar Corbett has decided to withdraw from the Tipperary Senior Hurling panel for the 2012 season.

A Tipperary County spokesman has confirmed that Corbett has informed his Tipperary manager, Declan Ryan, of this decision to withdraw from the panel, stating that he is unable to give a 100 % commitment to training, due to work and other business commitments.

While Tipperary management have left the door open for his potential return to the squad in the future, his decision is seen as a monumental blow to Tipperary hurling.

In an official statement released by the Tipperary County Board yesterday evening, the Board stated:-

“Tipperary Senior Hurling Management regrets that Lar Corbett has informed us of his withdrawal from the Tipperary Senior Hurling panel due to work and business commitments.
Lar’s importance and value to the Tipperary Senior Hurling team is immeasurable and the door will remain open to him for a return to the panel if those work pressures ease.”

Corbett, during his time with Tipperary, has won two All-Ireland SHC titles (2001, 2010), four Munster SHC titles (2001, 2008, 2009, 2011), two NHL titles (2001, 2008), three All Star accolades (2009, 2010, 2011), GAA, GPA and Texaco Hurler of the Year (2010) and three Tipperary SHC titles (2005, 2009, 2010).
