County sends get well messages to All-Ireland winning captain

There has been a huge outpouring of goodwill for Meath's 1999 All Ireland winning captain Graham Geraghty following the news that he took seriously ill on Tuesday evening and is in hospital in Dublin.

The former Seneschalstown and Clann na nGael player became ill at work on Tuesday night and was brought to Our Lady's Hospital, Navan before being transferred to Beaumont Hospital in Dublin where he is expected to undergo an operation this morning.

Many of Geraghty's former team mates have expressed their shock at the news with Bernard Flynn wishing the 47 year-old well.

"The football community is wishing Graham well, he's in Beaumont at the moment," said Flynn.

"The amount of good wishes that myself and other friends of Graham have received on his behalf is overwhelming. It's a time now for his family.

"We roomed together for the Ireland v England game for two nights in February, and the fun and craic we had, and we've had a few meet ups since.

"All our prayers are with Graham, Amanda and their kids."

Ballinabrackey player and former Meath corner-back Chris O'Connor also tweeted.

"Hearing news about Graham Geraghty is unbelievably sad. This man needs prayers, thoughts, good wishes whatever. He is a hero to any Meath person and he will fight like a hero. Hoping he recovers and shows us all how strong he is."

Father of four Geraghty won two All-Ireland SFC titles with Meath along with two Allstar awards and three Leinster SFC crowns.

He also played for Ireland in the International Rules series between 1999 and 2006.
