€250 Bet Placed On Bertie Ahern To Be Next President
Next President After Michael D. Higgins
We can report support for former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern to be the Next President of Ireland when current President Michael D Higgins moves out of Áras an Uachtaráin.
The Drumcondra native was as big as 20/1 early Tuesday morning,
but following numerous bets around our Dublin City Centre shops, including one bet of €250 at 20/1, his price has been halved into 10/1.
Louth native, Mairead McGuinness currently heads the betting at 11/2 with RTE presenter Miriam O’Callaghan next in the betting at 6/1.
Barnardos Chief Executive, Fergus Finlay is priced at 7/1 with Emily O’Reilly next in the market at 8/1.
Outsiders to become President include 40/1 chances Gerry Adams and Athlone native, Mary O’Rourke.
GAA pundit Joe Brolly is priced at 50/1 whilst Dana, who ran on two previous occasions, can be backed at 150/1.
Although Michael D Higgins still has a few years left in the Áras, we have to take precaution as we have all seen what happened last year with Donald Trump. In our opinion, Bertie Ahern would have a strong chance of contesting, if he decides to run, as he has no shortage of political experience on his CV.
