JUST THREE MONTHS ON from undergoing surgery for testicular cancer, Tipperary’s Noel McGrath has returned to action.

The player was in action for club side Loughmore-Castleiney, after recovering from the illness.

The Nenagh Guardian’s Shane Brophy tweeted the good news this evening.

And not only did he feature, according to Tipperary-based GAA administrator, Jonathan Cullen, McGrath produced an influential display.

At 24, McGrath is already considered one of Tipperary’s most talented hurlers, winning two All Stars while also featuring in the team’s 2010 All-Ireland triumph.

He returned to training last month after undergoing surgery for cancer in April.
