Gardai still trying to locate ex-GAA star

A FIVE-week-old warrant for the arrest of former Wexford GAA hurling star Paul Codd has yet to be executed, the High Court has heard.

The warrant was issued last month arising out of Mr Codd being declared bankrupt.

Mr Codd, an All-Ireland medal winner in 1996, is alleged to be in contempt of court orders directing him to engage with the official in charge of his bankruptcy.

He was adjudicated bankrupt by the High Court last March over failure to satisfy a judgment for €530,000 secured against him in 2011.

He failed to deal with the official assignee in bankruptcy, Chris Lehane.

Yesterday, Mr Lehane told Mr Justice Brian McGovern that gardai were continuing their efforts to locate Mr Codd.

Once that occurs, he will be arrested and brought before the court at the earliest opportunity.
