Bookies in Ireland
Sports play a significant role in the lives of most of Ireland's residents. The country's long-term proximity to Great Britain has had an effect, and the Irish, like the British, are quite passionate about gambling and sports betting.
Approximately one in five Irishmen visits various gambling establishments, and one-third of gamblers place their bets with bookmakers.
Ireland has an impressive number of Bookies (Betting Shops), which generated the bulk of the country's sports betting until recently.
However, with the advance of internet betting, the share of this market has declined significantly.
Now, there are dozens of Betting Sites showing steady growth in Irish punters in their customer base.
