He first appeared on the intercounty scene as a minor, the Moyne-Templetuohy club man then part of the Premier panel that defeated Kilkenny in the 1950 All-Ireland final, adding to his Munster and League titles that year.
Everard was also an accomplished footballer, winning a Munster junior football title with Tipp in 1952.
