Tipperary's Lar Corbett has announced his retirement from inter-county hurling for the second time.

The two-time All-Ireland winner with the Premier County made the announcement on his Twitter account this afternoon.

Corbett first stepped down from the Tipp panel in early 2012, but returned to feature in that year's championship.

In a statement on the social media site, he said: "It was a huge honour for me to play with Tipperary and I have many great memories and friendships from my time on the panel.

"Our All-Ireland winning years of 2001 and 2010 will always be special highlights but there were plenty of others as well."

Corbett scored three goals in the 2010 decider against Kilkenny, a feat that saw the Thurles man named Hurler of the Year.

The 34-year-old also picked up three consecutive All Star awards, in 2009, 2010 and 2011.

Called on to the county panel at the age of 19, Corbett made his championship debut against Clare in 2001 and went on to win six Munster titles.

In his statement Corbett thanked his inter-county teammates and management for their support and assistance over the years.

He also wished Tipperary well for the future.

Corbett is the fourth player to step away from the Tipp panel in recent weeks, following Conor O'Mahony, James Woodlock and Shane McGrath out the dressing room door.

The Tipperary county board added: "We are very grateful to him for his long, dedicated and decorated service to the county and we wish him all the best for the future."
