Have you ever imagined living in a world where Joe Brolly is President?
Although many believe that Michael D Higgins is an ideal candidate to hold the office of President, with an election due to be held in 2018, some are beginning to look at alternatives.
While names such as Dana Rosemary Scallon, Martin McGuinness and Pat Cox are said to be among the list of potential candidates, Joe Brolly has emerged as a surprise contender.
According to the Irish Independent, the odds on the controversial Sunday Game pundit becoming President tumbled after a series of bets were placed on such an outcome across the country, including a wager of €200 at 16/1.
As a result, Boyle Sports have moved Brolly into 10/1, behind the likes of fellow RTE Presenter Miriam O’Callaghan at 9/2, Mairead McGuinness at 11/2 and Fergus Finlay at 7/1.
We have to be honest and say that the prospect of having Brolly as President both frightens and excites us. Although it would be very entertaining.
