Amber Barrett has been on the other end of some speculative bets at huge odds to be crowned RTÉ Sports Personality of the Year.
This is after her historic goal for the Republic of Ireland against Scotland on Tuesday.

Vera Pauw’s side rode their luck at Hampden Park as Caroline Weir missed a penalty for the hosts just before half-time, but Barrett proved the difference from the bench as her second half strike was enough to send Republic of Ireland through to the World Cup Finals for the first time.
The striker from Milford in County Donegal has now been subject to bet requests from Irish punters, who quickly backed her down to 66/1 to scoop the RTÉ Sports Person of the Year gong after BoyleSports chalked her up at 200/1.
Barrett however faces fierce competition this year, with Bray boxer Katie Taylor a hot 1/8 favourite to win the award for the third time in her career.

Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports, said: “It’s no surprise to see support for Amber Barrett off the back of such a historic moment and an emotional night for the Irish.
“She was backed down from 200/1 to 66/1 within 24 hours of her goal, so it’s fair to say some patriotic punters believe she should be recognised even before she jets off Down Under for next summer’s World Cup.”
