De­lahuntys are a Mur­toa footy dy­nasty

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

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.
