And we’re off!

It looks like campaigning for the Irish Presidency has gotten underway yesterday. Fergus Finlay has written to the Labour Party asking for its nomination. Bertie Ahern signalled on RTÉ Radio One that he is interested in the Aras.

Maman Poulet has the betting odds which are the ones to watch!

David Norris 5/2
Brian Crowley 11/4
Michael D Higgins 3/1
John Bruton 7/1
Fergus Finlay 10/1
Sean Kelly MEP 10/1
Bertie Ahern 14/1
Mary Davis 16/1
Mairead McGuinness 16/1
Mary White 18/1
Emily O’Reilly 20/1

I dont think I would vote for Bertie or Finlay as president. I wont be voting for Sean Kelly either if he gets the nomination!

  1. What’s wrong with Fergus? I think he’d be excellent. Obviously, there’s no hope in hell I’d vote for Bertie. In fact, I’d contemplate emigrating were he to reside in the Aras. But the rest are good candidates IMO. Sean Kelly is probably a tad dull though.
