WEXFORD former hurling star Paul Codd faces arrest if he fails to attend a High Court hearing into his bankruptcy.
Mr. Codd was due to attend a hearing in Dublin on Monday, but failed to appear.
When his name was called, a non legal representative stepped forward to represent him, but Mr. Justice John Hedigan said the man had no authority to act for Mr. Codd.
Judge Hedigan granted orders directing Mr. Codd to attend court on October 14 or face arrest.
The judge said it was most unfortunate that Mr. Codd was being led by bad advice and was not facing up to reality.
Mr Codd was adjudicated bankrupt in April after a petition brought by County Cork farmer David Deasy over an unpaid €530,000 judgment he secured against the former hurler over a farm he had bought in Clonroche.
