Meath GAA legend, and All Ireland winning captain Graham Geragthy has been hospitalised with what sources describe as a serious illness.
Meath Live understands the 47 year old Kentstown native collapsed at work on Tuesday and was brought to Our Lady’s hospital in Navan before being transferred to Dublin’s Beaumont hospital where he is to undergo surgery at some stage today (Thursday).
One source told us’ ‘ It is believe Graham had what medics are describing as a brain aneurysm and requires an operation’.
Married with four children, Geraghty won two All-Ireland senior football titles in a stellar career with Meath, as well as three Leinster titles, and won two All Star awards.
The player who lined out for both Seneschalstown and Clan Na Gael also represented Ireland in the International Rules Series between 1999 and 2006.
Geraghty also entered the world of politics while still an inter-county player – he stood unsuccessfully for election as a Fine Gael candidate in the 2007 election in the Meath West constituency.
