His wife Amanda posted an update on the former Meath footballer's health on Facebook on Monday morning saying:
"Just to let everyone know that Graham is talking and although he is still in a lot of pain and still very sick he is overwhelmed with the support and good wishes yesterday the first thing he asked was 'are Meath playing today' please god in a few short months he will be standing on the sidelines at a game."
Meath GAA have this evening confirmed the news that Graham Geraghty's operation in Beaumont hospital today has been successful and the 1999 All-Ireland SFC winning captain is recovering well.
