Lar Corbett, from the Thurles Sarsfields club, is renowned as one of the most exciting forwards the game of hurling has seen. A three-time All-Star and former Hurler of the Year, he has won two All-Ireland senior medals with Tipperary and will be for ever remembered for his three-goal haul in the 2010 All-Ireland final. Since his intercounty debut in 2001, Corbett has established himself as one of the game’s greatest exponents.
