We have a big problem with linking gambling to sport;

  • Ireland sporting body bans gambling sponsorship due to harm
  • Racing fixing is under scrutiny again
  • Fixed odds betting terminals hitting poorest areas most
  • Ireland has a huge gambling problem
  • I can’t watch football without having a bet
  • Gambling addiction is rife at professional football clubs
  • Advertising Standards Authority clampdown on bookie adverts

The following are all the links to the media coverage proving we’re not making it up.

ps:  Does NOT include all the media coverage of violence and robberies in betting shops.
