Rooting big time for @MeathGAA legend Graham Geraghty as he tries to overcome one of the biggest challenges of his life. Stepped in at short notice to be special guest at the @RoscommonHerald @SuperValuIRL Sportstar of the Year awards in January 2018 and was a huge hit #GAA pic.twitter.com/xrB5mOLk2j— Ian Cooney (@cooney_ian) October 29, 2020
Wishing Graham Geraghty a speedy recovery. Despite what county you're from and believe me he broke many an Offaly heart over the years, he was a remarkable footballer for @MeathGAA and Seneschalstown.— Mary Dunne (@maryballyfore) October 29, 2020
