Bertie now 10/1 from 20/1 to be next President of Ireland

Former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern

BoyleSports can report support for former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern to be the next President of Ireland after current President Michael D Higgins decides to call it a day at the Aras.

The Drumcondra native was as big as 20/1 early Tuesday morning, but following numerous bets around BoyleSports’ 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 Martin McGuinness whilst Athlone native, Mary O’Rourke can also be backed at 40/1.

GAA pundit Joe Brolly is priced at 50/1 whilst Dana, who ran on two previous occasions, can be backed at 150/1.
