Delahuntys are a Murtoa footy dynasty
Richmond success in the AFL this weekend would complete a football premiership trifecta for Murtoa’s Delahunty family.
If Tigers spearhead Tom Lynch is part of a victorious Richmond campaign he will join first cousins Lachie Delahunty and Jordan Delahunty as 2019 premiership players.
Lachie Delahunty, son of David Delahunty, added a Western Australian Football League premiership with Subiaco on Sunday to his 2019 Sandover Medal.
Teenager Jordan Delahunty, son of Paul Delahunty, was part of Minyip-murtoa’s Wimmera league premiership, also last weekend.
Lynch is the son of Maria Lynch, nee Delahunty, the sister of Mark, David, Roderick, Paul and Trish and part of a large collection of close and distant cousins, uncles and aunts.
Lachie Delahunty, 28, revealed in an interview during 3WM’S coverage of the Wimmera league grand final that he planned to one day return home to play with the Burras.
Tom Lynch’s sister Beth also plays elite football, with North Melbourne in the AFLW.
Wimmera league Toohey Medallist Kieran Delahunty, Burras premiership coach John Delahunty and former VFL players Hugh, Essendon, and Mick, Collingwood, are also part of the expanded Delahunty elite football-playing mix.
