"He will make a full recovery"

Amanda Geraghty, the wife of Meath footballer Graham Geraghty told the Meath Chronicle today that her husband “will make a full recovery.”

Earlier this month Geraghty (47) underwent a major operation in Beaumont Hospital after suffering a brain hemorrhage and aneurysm at work.

Although admitting he had “a long road ahead” the Athboy woman is confident the footballing legend will make a full recovery. She said:

“He is doing good, he is talking and coherent and he’s up walking around, he has just a lot of fatigue and pain.

“It will be a long road to recovery but he will make a full recovery please god so we are very lucky.”

In a social media post at the weekend, Amanda said that Graham “had surpassed everyone’s expectations and thanked everyone for “all their prayers and acts of kindness.”

The father-of-four retired from inter-county football in 2012 but had continued to play for his club into his mid-40s.

Last November, several of his winning medals were taken during a robbery on his home although some of them were later retrieved.
