Bankrupt former hurling star must attend court or face arrest
A High Court judge has said it is "most unfortunate" that former GAA star Paul Codd is not "facing up to the reality" of his bankruptcy.
The former Wexford hurling player now has attend to court in October for questioning or face arrest.
Paul Codd was adjudicated a bankrupt earlier this year with debts of almost €5m.
The court has been told that he is not co-operating with the official assigned to take control of his assets.
The former Wexford hurling player did not attend court today.
When his name was called, a non legal representative stepped forward, but Mr Justice John Hedigan ruled the man had no authority to act for the former sports star.
The judge ignored the man’s repeated interruptions and granted orders directing Paul Codd to turn up in court for questioning on October 14 or be arrested.
He said it was most unfortunate the former hurling player is not facing up to the reality of the situation, adding that Mr Codd’s been given an opportunity to co-operate instead of being led by bad advice.
