Mannion unsure of O'Carroll return


Rory O'Carroll is unlikely to feature for the Dublin footballers in 2017.

Dublin were dealt a major blow ahead of the 2016 inter-county season when O'Carroll announced his decision to opt out of the panel in order to spend the year travelling.

It was thought he would returned to Ireland at the end of his time in New Zealand, but former team-mate Paul Mannion has revealed that the three-time All-Ireland medallist appears to be in no rush to return any time soon.

“As far as I understand, he won’t be back. He only arrived in New Zealand a few weeks back. He’s looking to get a job there now and he’s got his girlfriend there so he seems happy out," Mannion told The Irish Times.

"I don’t expect him to be back next year. We’d love to have him back and we all wish him well but he’s happy so that’s the most important thing.”

Conor McGregor will fight Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight belt at UFC 205 in New York on November 12 live on the eir Sport pack. The eir Sport pack is free to all eir broadband customers. To learn more about setting sport free visit www.eir.ie/sport .
