With the Irish Bank Resolution Corporation’s (IBRC) sale of utilities operator Siteserv to the Denis O’Brien-controlled company Millington currently sending the Irish government into turmoil. Irish independent sports betting operator BoyleSports has reported a surge of support for there to be a general election before the end of 2015.
Initially priced at 10/1, the Irish election call is now 6/1 that there will be an Irish general election before the end of 2015 following a surge of support on Friday morning.
It’s 8/15 that the current Taoiseach (Head of Government) Enda Kenny will remain in charge after the next general election whilst it’s 11/8 that any other person will be voted in as Taoiseach after the next general election.
Liam Glynn, BoyleSports said “With the Siteserv controversy causing a massive stir in the past 48 hours, we have seen a surge of support for there to be a General Election before the end of 2015. Three hefty bets were already placed at 10/1 on Friday morning and our traders believe that the worst is yet to come and have clipped the price into 6/1.”
He added “The question now has to be asked whether Enda Kenny will remain as Taoiseach after the next General Election and it’s currently 11/8 that we will have a new Taoiseach after the next general election.”
