Miriam O’Callaghan still features High in Betting at 12/1

New Taoiseach Micheál Martin (Fianna Fail), from Cork South Central, is already being backed for a future bid in the Phoenix Park.

The current President of Ireland Michael D. Higgins must relinquish the role in 2025 when his second term is scheduled to come to an end , and punters are already speculating that the Fianna Fáil leader could take his place in Áras an Uachtaráin.

BoyleSports traders had to react fast when the money started to arrive with his odds crumbling into 66/1 from 100/1. However, the support didn’t stop there and now Micheál Martin is 50/1 to become the next President of Ireland.

Sarah Kinsella, Spokesperson for BoyleSports commented:

“Tuesday afternoon saw a new burst of support for the new Taoiseach Micheál Martin to become the next President of Ireland in 2025. The Fianna Fáil leader is now 50/1 after punters took advantage of his much bigger odds of 100/1.”
