Power offers long (ish) odds on United Ireland…

Can’t see this market shipping too much money for Paddy Power, but fair play to them for offering it… For the optimistic nationalists amongst us, you can push the boat out for 2012 at 25/1 (maybe lib2016, reckons 2017 is a bargin at 20/1)… The shortest odds come in at 10/1 for 2027… and probably constitutes the ‘safest’ bet, but there are probably more profitable ways of tying your money up for twenty years… Evens looks to be a long way off… Thanks to Parci, for the heads up!
