Hundreds of Laois GAA supporters received a windfall this morning by way of apology from us.
We caused outrage among diehard fans in advance of the county’s shock win against odds on favourites Dublin at O’Moore Park last Sunday.
Believers in Eddie Brennan’s capabilities took to social media ahead of the match to brand the company ‘disrespectful’ after they priced up Tipp V Dublin to meet in this weekend’s All-Ireland hurling quarter final – ignoring the possibility that Laois could feature.
When they beat Dublin 1-22 to 0-23, fans took their opportunity to stick it to Paddy Power.
“We’re happy to pay the price for underestimating Eddie Brennan’s boys so we are giving a free €10 bet to our online customers who were brave enough to back them last weekend,” said our spokesman Paddy Power.
“Given that there’s a 98.9% probability that Tipp will beat them in Croke Park this Sunday, I wouldn’t back them with someone else’s money – so we decided to give loyal Laois fans that option,” he added.
