That is according to co-founder of Lisa Richards agency, Richard Cook, who commented in response to new accounts showing accumulated profits at Lisa Richards Ltd dropped from €279,285 to €231,991 in the 12 months to the end of June last.

Auditors for the firm Meagher Moynihan confirmed Lisa Richards Ltd was loss-making last year.

The Dublin and London-based agency represents some of Ireland’s best-known creative artists, including Love/Hate actors Robert Sheehan, Charlie Murphy and Aoibhinn McGinnity.

The fortunes of Lisa Richards have flourished in the current year, in tandem with the careers of some of its clients, including Cillian Murphy and Michael McElhatton who have received rave notices for their roles in TV dramas Peaky Blinders and Game of Thrones.

Mr Cook said yesterday: “We are very pleased to see our strategy is paying off, most notably with regards to Europe and our London operation.

“We will return to profit this year, which is as per our schedule”

The figures for last year show that the firm’s cash pile increased from €111,399 to €171,602.

The firm has been in business for over 25 years and employs 15 between its London and Dublin offices.

It represents actors, comedians, voiceover artists, authors and playwrights, directors, designers and presenters.
