Graham Geraghty’s wife Amanda has taken to social media to thank everyone in the GAA community for the support shown towards Graham following his sudden illness.

The 1999 All-Ireland winning Meath captain underwent an operation in the Beaumont Hospital on Thursday after he took ill on Tuesday. The procedure was successful but the next number of days are crucial for the recovery of the 47-year-old.

“Myself and my children want to thank everyone for the thousands of messages of support,” said Amanda on her Facebook page. “We know that everyone in the GAA community is praying for Graham.

“His operation went well yesterday but he is just off the face of the cliff. He is certainly not out of the woods the next five days are critical and he has a long road of recovery in front of him but we know the Gods on the Hill of Tara will pull one of their best warriors through
