FOLLOWING the publication of the Clare Champion-commissioned 2016 Clare Constituency General Election Poll, Paddy Power Betfair have reacted by making significant changes to the odds of offer for the candidates.
“Following a poll from The Clare Champion our prices have drastically changed. Two sitting TDs (Joe Carey (FG) and Michael McNamara (Lab) are in massive trouble,” commented a spokesman for the bookmakers.
The odds for Pat Breen and Timmy Dooley have tightened from 1/12 to an almost unbackable 1/25. Independent Dr Michael Harty has moved in from 5/4 to 1/4, with the odds on Sinn Fein’s Noleen Moran shortening significantly from 10/1 to 8/13.
Michael McDonagh (FF) has also come in from 9/4 to 6/4, while sitting TD Joe Carey (FG) has drifted from 1/8 to 10/3, the other sitting TD under pressure, Michael McNamara (Lab) out from 5/2 to 4/1. Ann Norton (Ind) has drifted in the market from 3/1 to 14/1,
Clare Colleran Mollloy (FF) 9/1 to 14/1, and Ian Lynch (Ind) 10/3 to 25/1.
