Conal Keaney has come out of retirement to rejoin the Dublin senior hurling panel ahead of the Allianz Hurling League.
The former dual player announced his retirement in 2016 after winning the club football championship with Ballyboden St Enda’s, citing family and business commitments.
In seven years as a Dublin footballer, Keaney won one National League title and five Leinster titles, but missed out on the Sam Maguire in 2011 after choosing to focus on hurling that year.
However, he won a National Hurling League title with the Sky Blues in 2011 as well as the Leinster title in 2013 and he will be hoping for further success under new manager Pat Gilroy.
His return was confirmed on Twitter by Dublin Match Tracker on Wednesday.
"So @ConalKeaney is back training with the Dublin Senior Hurling squad for 2018 #Allianz #Gaa ↓↓↓," Dublin Match Tracker tweeted.
