It is time to say goodbye to Michael Martin after almost 10 years of service since 2011. As for the future, let’s take a look at the betting odds for prominent candidates to become the next Fianna Fail Leader.
All eligible Irish citizens have the rights to vote on the next general election which is expected on April 2021, according to gambling news in Ireland. Of course, the said election could be held before then if the parliament were to dissolve earlier than expected. Who will become the next next Fianna Fail Leader? Below, we have a list of the strong contenders as well as their betting odds.
According to Irish betting sites, Dara Calleary’s odds to become the next Fianna Fail Leader at 3.75 are among the top. He is currently an Opposition Spokesperson on Public Expenditure and Reform. A notable accomplishment of Calleary’s was when he successfully served as the Minister of State for Labour Affairs from 2009 to 2011.
Dara Calleary is the third generation of TD for Mayo in his family, with previous ones being his father and grandfather. The Calleary family also has a long history with Fianna Fail. Being born with a great connection, Dara Calleary is certainly backed with massive support if he runs for Fianna Fail leadership.
The Opposition Spokesperson for Justice and Equality, Jim O’Callaghan (6.00), has decent odds of becoming the next Fianna Fail Leader. The TD for Dublin Bay South receives a plus point for his voluntary work as a Legal Advisor to Fianna Fail. Not only popular within his own party, he’s also widely accepted by opponents from other parties. It’s a good idea to consider Jim O’Callaghan as an option for online betting in Ireland.
Finally, we have Michael McGrath who is the current Opposition Spokesperson on Finance as well as a TD for Cork South-Central. He has the best odds to become next Fianna Fail Leader at 2.75. The party members definitely favour a candidate of his calibre.
McGrath is a sign for change in the better direction. He has called for actions to be taken with issues such as high mortgage interest when compared to the EU. Just imagine all the things he could achieve as a Fianna Fail Leader.
Bet on the Next Fianna Fail Leader!
Michael McGrath (2.75) is the bookies’ favourite to become the next Fianna Fail Leader. Dara Calleary (3.75) and Jim O’Callaghan (6.00) also have the top three best odds. So let’s bet on Irish politics at Betway Sportsbook. Keep in mind that bets on the next Fianna Fail Leader close on the 1st of January 2019.
