The wife of GAA legend Graham Geraghty has thanked everyone for their 'thousands of messages of support' as he recovers from suffering a brain haemorrhage.

Amanda Geraghty has said her husband is not yet out of the woods after intensive surgery on Thursday, adding that the next five days are 'critical.'

There has been a huge outpouring of best wishes from the GAA community and beyond since the former All-Ireland winning captain suffered a brain haemorrhage at work on Tuesday night.

He was transferred from Our Lady's Hospital in Navan to Dublin's Beaumont Hospital where he underwent the lengthy surgery, under top neuro-surgeon Dr Paul Brennan early on Thursday morning.

In a post on her Facebook page, she said: "Myself and my children want to thank everyone for the thousands of messages of support and we know that everyone in the GAA community is praying for Graham.

"His operation went well yesterday (Thursday) but he is just off the face of the cliff and 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."

The 47-year old All-Star and dad of four who lives near Athboy won an All-Ireland title with Meath in 1996 and captained the team to another victory three years later.

He and Amanda have also worked tirelessly for the homeless in recent years both in Meath and Dublin as part of the voluntary group Athboy's People Who Share Care group.
