Micheál Martin Odds Slashed To Be Replaced As Fianna Fáil Leader in 2020

The Irish government is in a political crisis and punters have now backed Micheál Martin to be replaced as Fianna Fáil leader by the end of the year.

This move comes after Irish Agriculture Minister Dara Calleary resigned after attending a golf dinner with more than 80 people.

Wednesday’s Irish parliamentary golf society event at a County Galway hotel came a day after government announced a tightening of lockdown restrictions and BoyleSports have now cut Micheál Martin into 7/1 from 20/1 to no longer be Fianna Fáil leader by the end of 2020.

There has also been support for Martin to be replaced by the end of 2021 with those odds much shorter at 5/2, tumbling in from 16/1. Ireland could be heading back to the polls this year if the latest betting is to be believed after the odds on the next election happening in 2020 were cut into 8/1 from 12/1.

The current chaos in the government has also seen an increase in support for a general election sooner rather than later, with 2020 to hold the next one now an 8/1 chance from 12/1.
