Odds slashed on Saoirse McHugh becoming MEP after Primetime debate

BACK

Saoirse McHugh’s stand-out performance on RTE’s Primetime EU election debate has seen bookies slash her odds of taking a seat in Midlands-North-West.

The Achill native was hailed for calling out Peter Casey for scapegoating migrants and now Paddy Power have slashed her odds putting her level pegging with Casey for a seat.

Before Primetime she was at 50/1 but since then she has dropped to 33/1, 22/1, 11/1 and now 4/1.

Green Party Leader Eamon Ryan said:

“I think we can win all three southern constituencies. We feel that we have a chance in Dublin, in Ireland South and we put it to anyone who watched the debate last night that we now have a real chance in Midlands North West.”

“Saoirse had an incredible performance on Primetime. It was great that people got to see her in action. She is a passionate, authentic and articulate person and she really deserves to be the voice of the young generation and rural Ireland in the next European Parliament.

“Irish people have a choice this Friday between candidates and parties who care about protecting people and the planet and those who don’t. If you want green vote Green.”
