Ryan Tubridy, of RTE Radio One, at Cheltenham this week

Aaron Rogan, of The Times Ireland edition, reports:

The Ryan Tubridy Show has defended its failure to tell listeners that yesterday’s broadcast, which featured an interview with Paddy Power, was sponsored by the bookmaker.

The RTÉ Radio 1 programme was broadcast live from Cheltenham at the expense of the gambling giant.

After the 9.30am news Tubridy interviewed Paddy Power but did not say that the company had paid for the production team to travel to and broadcast from the festival.

The company last week sponsored a competition on the programme for listeners to win a trip to the event.

Are you ‘that’ guy/girl?

Stop crying inwardly.

‘Talk like Paddy: Communicate – both in written and verbal form – in the brand tone. Whether that’s when you’re writing one of the PP columns, composing a press release quote attributable to Paddy Power, or off-the-cuff while appearing on television or radio.

…One minute you’ll be putting together a press release reacting to the latest breaking news, the next collaborating with our busy trading room floor to answer a media enquiry, and the third you’ll be supporting Mischief activities around the major calendar events…’

Paddy Power odds on the make up of the next government

Polliing is open.

But what are the bookies saying?

Shane Heneghan writes:

The bookies never lose as they say but the odds should be seen both as a reflection of what is likely to happen and where punters money is going.

There are many different books open ranging from betting on the turnout to the results in each of the 40 separate constituencies and, for the record, Laois is the favourite to be the first constituency to return a first count.

When it comes to government formation, the clear favourite remains the ara-sure-it’s-grand coalition of Fine Gael and Fianna Fail. This is not surprising as it is in step with what polls are saying.

It is interesting to note, however, that Betfair, Paddy Power and Ladbrokes have all recently shortened their odds on a Fine Gael minority administration indicating perhaps that a Tallaght strategy style arrangement where Fianna Fail supports a Fine Gael minority government (without taking seats at cabinet) is a strong possibility.

This makes sense in the light of both Civil War parties down playing the idea of a full blown coalition. How stable such a set-up would be is another matter.

Ladbrokes are saying a second election this year is incredibly likely at an unbackable 8/15.

In other news, for those watching out for the potential effect of the new gender quotas regime Paddy Power seems to predict that the number of female representation is likely to remain static quoting odds of 5/6 on it remaining at 19.5% or less.

It should be noted that in the last UK election the betting odds tended to follow the opinion polls, despite the traditionally perceived bias that they traditionally tend to have a bias towards the Conservatives.

Once again Paddy Power on the ball! Nearly spat my coffee out!

This just in.

Kind of like celebrities reading mean tweets about themselves but different.

May contain colourful language.
