Dr Crokes player Brian McMahon faces a hearing with the British Army last week after he was accused of going AWOL from the British Army 10 years ago.
McMahon was about to fly home from a friend's stag in England on 21 March when police boarded the plane he was on to inform him that he was wanted for questioning. He had been in the British army for two years over a decade ago but according to the Irish Independent, he left without being discharged.
The now building contractor told Kerry's Eye 'This is just a paper trail. I have worked and paid taxes in London. How this is being flagged now is a mystery.'
While he had been questioned about it once before while on a trip to Wales, McMahon said that had he'd known there was still a problem he would have already went to the UK and sought a discharge.
There's a hearing next week but we don't know how it's going to be handled, not until the day. There is a possibility you have to stay for three or four days in army custody for punishment, it's within their rights, but no one has suggested to me that anything like that is going to happen.
If I was from the UK, this could take several weeks, but I want to stay here and get it sorted out once and for all.
So far McMahon has faced one military hearing since he was called in and will face another in the coming days.
