Setanta Ó hAilpín might not have played his last game for Cork
             Setanta Ó hAilpín's future in the AFL is in doubt after being released by his Carlton today Blues.  Ó hAilpín had been looking to move away from the Melbourne club but the trade window closed without him securing a new deal and he was subsequently delisted by Carlton. 
            The former Young Hurler of the Year signed for Carlton in 2004 and went on to make 80 appearances for the AFL outfit.  Despite the apparent lack of interest, O hAilpin's manager believes the 28-year-old will be snapped up in next month's draft.  This is despite the fact that no club came for him during trade week which has just ended.
Setanta: Released by Carlton Blues today
             “I think Setanta's opportunities are still there, and his last game of football was a preliminary final so he must be offering something," - said Blues Head Coach Michael Quinlan upon revealing the news of Setanta's departure. 
               Hopes are high in Ireland and particularly on Leeside however that the 6'5" colossus could return to the Rebel county during the next few months and perhaps resurrect his GAA career.
