Leinster have re-signed utility back Niall Morris on a short-term contract from Leicester.
The 27-year-old left Leinster for the Tigers in 2011 after playing eight times for his home province.
He went on to score 18 tries in 75 appearances during his five seasons with Leicester but is now back with the Leinster squad for pre-season training.
Morris, who has played three times for the Emerging Ireland team and six times for Ireland U20s, told the Leinster website: "After five enjoyable years in England, I am delighted to return to my home province, Leinster.
"I know the club well and it has fantastic players, staff and supporters. It is one of the biggest clubs in Europe and I am very much looking forward to being part of such a great set-up, again."
Leinster coach Leo Cullen added: "Niall was unlucky with injuries in his last season in England but has performed at a very high level for the Tigers in both the Premiership and in the Champions Cup.
"He brings good experience to our back-three, an area that is already very competitive and we look forward to seeing Niall in action on a pitch soon."
