Clash of the ash debut shows Geraghty is not the retiring type

Graham Geraghty is retired from county football for two years, but his sense of adventure still remains keen. He took to a new sport at the age of 37 last weekend when he turned out in his ever first hurling game for Clann na Gael, Athboy.

Having played much of his football career with Seneschalstown, Geraghty would not have had any exposure to hurling which, in Meath, is largely confined to the west and south west of the county.

Geraghty started at No 12 in a league game where Clann na Gael drew with Donaghmore Ashbourne.

On Sunday he'll be part of the Longford backroom team, having taken up an invitation from manager Glenn Ryan to coach the forwards.
