The Department of the Taoiseach announced last Friday that Trump would stop in Ireland for a ‘brief visit’ on his way to the Armistice commemorations in Paris in November.
Several politicians including some government ministers have confirmed they will boycott Donald Trump’s visit to Ireland this November. Trump has suffered a conflicted few weeks in office, with his former lawyer Michael Cohen pleading guilty to breaking campaign finance laws.
Now, according to bookmakers Boylesports, the US President’s Irish visit is 5/1 not to go ahead at all. They also have current odds of 10/1 on Trump facing impeachment before his trip. Trump’s last Irish visit included a pit stop at his golf course Doonbeg in Co Clare, and he is at even money to grab 18 holes during his stay.
There’s also speculation that his arrival will coincide with the first day in the office for the newly elected President of Ireland on November 12th. Michael D Higgins is at 1/6 to be the man to welcome his American counterpart by winning the Election at the end of October.
Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports reportedly stated that “It looks like those who backed Trump to hit Ireland before the end of the year are going to get paid out, but they’re already turning to what he’ll get up to when he’s here.
We’re hearing it’ll be a brief visit, however, plenty of Irish punters have been asking for odds that he’ll squeeze in a round of golf and we won’t be surprised if they’ve got the schedule down to a tee.”
