Some Donegal locals are betting on President Donald Trump to make an appearance at the Irish Open in Ballyliffin.

President Trump is due in Britain on July 13 and the Irish Open is taking place in Inishowen from July 5 to 8, causing some Donegal people to speculate on the possibility of presidential visit to the peninsula.

BoyleSports have offered odds of 11/10 on Donald Trump making a visit to Ireland.

President Trump’s visit to Britain is proving unpopular with Labour Leader, Jeremy Corbyn saying it should be cancelled, following US plans to increase tariffs and the outcry over the separation of migrant children from their parents at US borders.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar is said to have invited President Trump to visit Ireland during his St. Patrick’s Day trip to the White House in March past.

Lawrence Lyons, Spokesperson for BoyleSports commented: Donald Trump is due in Britain next month but we are growing suspicious about an Irish trip in the offing after a few bet requests in Dublin this week.


“We are making it a short 11/10 shot that he flies in during his first term in the White House but it’s hair-raising prospect for us now after the bets we took.”
