NEW CONTRACT OFFER: Cork's Setanta Ó hAilpín (left)
            Zach Tuohy is expected to re-sign for the Carlton Blues after his two-year international rookie contract expired recently.  The former Laois minor star returned home to Portlaoise last week after making 11 appearances for the Blues in the AFL this season and the Melbourne club have made it clear to him that they want him to remain with them in 2012. 
WANTED MAN: Down's Marty Clark
          "Zach went home to Ireland last week in the knowledge that we're keen to offer him a new contract and he will be at Carlton next year," the Blues' general manager Steven Icke said.
             Carlton are also set to offer Cork's Setanta O hAilpin a new contract, while they have made no secret of their desire to bring Down star Martin Clarke back to the AFL. For that to happen, however, they will have to sign the ex-Collingwood man through the AFL's draft or via a deal with new franchise Great Western Sydney as he is a former Aussie Rules player.
"We're really keen for Martin to come here. We're waiting to hear back from him and his management." Icke added.
