THINGS are looking positive for the Healy-Rae brothers’ hopes of winning two seats in the new five-seat Kerry constituency, as suggested by the latest odds from BoyleSports and a poll conducted for TG4.
The Ipsos MRBI survey for TG4's Seacht Lá programme shows Michael Healy-Rae with support of 33% – more than twice the quota.
With his brother and fellow Independent Danny Healy-Rae on 4%, a vote-management strategy could result in both brothers taking a seat.
And this evening bookmakers BoyleSports has seen one of the biggest political gambles so far in the Irish General Election as the odds of Kerry’s Danny Healy-Rae have been slashed into 1/7 from 13/8 overnight.
Having initially been installed at 6/1 last week when it was announced that he would be running for a seat, Danny Healy-Rae is now 1/7 to win one of the available five seats following the latest poll From TG4 regarding Kerry.
“Punters cannot get enough of Danny Healy-Rae and following the latest TG4 poll, he now looks certain to win one of the five available seats as punters have backed him into 1/7 from 6/1 in just under a week," Liam Glynn, BoyleSports’ spokesperson, said.
According to BoyleSports data, Michael Healy-Rae’s odds are at 1/500.

Nicole Coffey of Nicole’s Hair Salon on St Anne’s was inspired to run a fundraiser for a women’s refuge after hearing distressing stories from some of her clients.

On Saturday last she offered a wash and blow-dry to clients and rather than charging them for the her services her customers made a donation to Adapt Women’s Refuge in Tralee.

Nicole was inspired to run the charity day because a lot of her regular clients opened up to her while they were getting their hair done.

The timing of her charity day was poignant as it came just days after Ashling Murphy was murdered while out for a run in her own town of Tullamore.

“People open up while I do their hair, many of them would not know that there is a refuge in Kerry,” she told the Killarney Advertiser. “I have experience with clients who are struggling. I had this idea to create more awareness for Adapt.”

She raised €2,000 for Adapt and the cheque was handed over to the Tralee-based charity on Thursday night this week.

Such was the success of her charity day Nicole worked from 7am to 7pm and as well as cash donations customers also donated vouchers and care packs to the charity.
