Two time All-Ireland winner Graham Geraghty could be sidelined for the rest of the season as he is suffering with an achilles injury.
Geraghty, aged 38, was persuaded by Meath manager Séamus ‘Banty’ McEnaney to re-join the Royals’ panel last year. That action caused selectors Liam Harnan and Barry O’Callaghan to resign. Geraghty’s return did not last long however as he ruptured the achilles tendon in his right leg.
He joined McEnaney’s backroom staff for the remainder of the season but made it clear his desire to continue playing in 2012 and he played in two fixtures as a substitute during the National Football League.
The achilles has failed to respond to treatment and Geraghty admits that his season will be over unless the injury improves soon.
There was however some good news for Meath as Joe Sheridan played his first game since returning from his sojourn in Boston and scored two goals in the county’s challenge match with Westmeath.
