Brian Cody has added Conor Phelan to his backroom team with the Kilkenny hurlers.
The Clara clubman won an All Ireland medal in 2003 when he was just 19, but had to retire from the inter-county game due to a heart problem.
Elsewhere, earlier it was announced that Colin Fennelly is to take a year out of the inter-county hurling game.
His move followed the retirements of Paul Murphy and Ger Aylward on Noreside in recent days.
