In this crazy football transfer market, what if a Premier League player was signed by a League of Ireland team? This may not be as far-fetched as it originally seems, considering the possibility of Champions League football for the League of Ireland club.
Since Premier League players are known to drive expensive large engined cars, we have taken a look at what a typical Premier League player would pay for car insurance if they transferred to the League of Ireland.
The Range Rover Evoque is the most popular car driven by Premier League players across the water, so we have used this for our analysis.
We picked four areas – North (Donegal), South (Cork), East (Dublin) and West (Sligo) plus the town of the League Champions Dundalk.
Sligo and Cork had the cheapest quote followed by Donegal and Dublin. Dundalk had the most expensive quote by a clear distance.
Quotes are based on a 25 year old male footballer with a five years no claims bonus.
