Bookmakers slash odds on one Offaly candidate getting elected

Bookmakers Paddy Power has slashed its odds on one Laois Offaly Fianna Fáil candidate getting elected when the General Election and expects women to lose their seats in the five-seat constituency. 

When betting opened, Offaly councillor Peter Ormond was priced at 5/2 to get elected but his odds have shortened dramatically to 8/11. Based on the latest odds from Paddy Power, Fianna Fáil would return three TDs in Laois/Offaly, Sinn Féin one and Fine Gael one. 

Sinn Féin's Brian Stanley is the bookies favourite at 1/20 with Barry Cowen of Fianna Fáil is next at 1/14.

While he is still odds on to get elected, Minister for Justice Charlie Flanagan of Fine Gael has seen his odds drift 1/18 to 1/7.

Based on the latest odds, the bookies expect two sitting Offaly women TDs, Marcella Corcoran-Kennedy (FG) and Carol Nolan (IND) would likely lose their seats.
