Blindboy Boatclub In Running For Next President of Ireland

After appearing on the Late Late show on Friday night as part of a panel to discuss the 1916 commemorations this year, BoyleSports has introduced Blindboy Boatclub into the next permanent Irish presidential betting.

Blindboy aka Dave Chambers made a serious impression on viewers and as a result has been installed into the betting at 40/1 after viewers expressed their opinions about the Limerick man becoming the next President of Ireland on social media.

Currently Mairead McGuinness is the favourite at 11/2 to take over from Michael D Higgins, with RTE presenter Miriam O’Callaghan next in the betting at 6/1. Fergus Finlay is priced at 7/1 with Ireland’s first female Ombudsman, Emily O’Reilly next in the betting at 8/1.

Longshots for the role include former Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern at 100/1, Gerry Adams at 80/1 and Dana Rosemary Scallon who has run as a candidate on two previous occasions at 66/1.

Despite currently being a longshot at 40/1, if the public continue to get behind the Limerick native we could see his odds shorten up and…

wouldn’t it be some sight to see Blindboy’s ‘Horse Outside’ Áras an Uachtaráin.
