Martin McDonagh’s Irish based The Banshees Of Inisherin has proved a big hit with critics as well as cinema goers and is being well backed to play a huge part in the annual awards ceremony in March.

Star Colin Farrell has been backed down to just 7/2 from 6/1 with BoyleSports to walk off with the Best Actor Oscar for his role in the tragic comedy, which is also in the mix in the early betting for Best Picture at 5/1.

A visit to the ballot box could also be on the cards in the New Year as speculation that the coalition government is destined to collapse in 2023 has been on an upward trend over Christmas, enough to see the odds on a new election being cut into just 4/1 from 6/1.

On the sporting field…

Ireland are amongst the favourites to be crowned Rugby Union world champions in France in the Autumn at 5/1

…while golfer Shane Lowry is a 10/1 shot to add a second major championship to his CV before the year is out.

Other potential items on the 2023 agenda include a White Easter in Dublin at 16/1, which is deemed much more likely than the 50/1 about Ireland ending a 27-year wait to win the Eurovision Song Contest when the event arrives in Liverpool in May.
