Following the news that Enda Kenny will retire as Fine Gael leader effective from midnight last night, BoyleSports have reported that Leo Varadkar is the firm 2/5 favourite to succeed him as party leader.

Simon Coveney was a one-time favourite for the role, but is currently in Varadkar’s shadow as the 7/4 second favourite.

Aoife Heffron, Spokeswoman for BoyleSports commented: “With Enda Kenny’s retirement coming into effect, we have seen an influx of bets on Leo Varadkar, who was once priced at 11/10 to take over as Fine Gael leader, but currently heads the betting at the short odds of 2/5.”

She added “We expect the next 24 hours to be a hectic for our traders as already punters are out in force to have their say on the next Fine Gael leader.”
