8 things just as likely to happen as Longford beating Dublin

Is Katie Price really more likely to win a Nobel Prize than Longford are to beat Dublin?

LONGFORD ENTER THEIR Leinster quarter-final on Sunday afternoon as slight underdogs to beat Dublin. According to the odds, they may as well not show up as they haven’t got a hope in hell of stopping the sky blue machine.

Dublin are 1/200 for the win; at that price you can put €240 on the Dubs and if/when they win, you’ll have the price of four Freddo bars back as your profit.

Here’s a list of things that are just as likely to happen as Dublin losing according to the bookies:
