2017 Irish Election Now Odds On To Happen

Year Of Next Irish General Election

Outright Betting

We can report that an Irish General Election in 2017 may well be announced sooner rather than later as punters have backed it further.

The price has shortened dramatically into 1/6 on Wednesday evening from 7/4 on Monday morning

and it now looks like it’s only a matter of weeks before an election is called judging by the surge of support.

As a result of the sustained support for us to be heading to the polling stations in 2017, a General Election to happen in 2018 has been eased to 6/1 from 5/1 whilst 2019 has drifted out to 9/1 from 7/1.

2020 has now been eased to 20/1 from 16/1 whilst 2021 or later is now priced at 33/1 from 20/1.

After Fianna Fáil took an 11 point lead over rival party, Fine Gael, in the latest Behaviour & Attitudes poll in the Irish Sunday Times, punters were quick to take the 4/5 about them winning the most seats in the next General Election and as a result, the price has hardened further into 8/15.
