Offaly forward Niall McNamee will return to the county panel for the 2012 season.
McNamee had retired from county football after revealing a gambling addiction.
The 26 year old has undergone treatment for his addiction and will now return to the panel.
The forward is not expected to return to the first team immediately, however.
Offaly manager Gerry Cooney said: “”I am glad to welcome him back. I believe he’s in a good place. He is working with his programme and that is the most important part of his life at the moment.”
