Accumulated profits at Co Roscommon man Chris O’Dowd’s UK production firm last year increased four fold to almost €500,000.

Figures show that the accumulated profits at Hot Cod Productions Ltd increased by 275%, going from £94,426 to £354,699 (€491,493), in the year to the end of October 2014.

Hot Cod Productions is one of the companies behind his very successful ‘Moone Boy’ series based on O’Dowd’s childhood and part filmed in Boyle..

Separate accounts filed by the Irish-based production firm behind the third series of Moone Boy, Moone Boy 3 Ltd, show that it recorded a loss of €876,166 in the period to the end of July 2014.

However, the loss is understood to be attributed to the up-front costs of producing the series, which has been a major hit for broadcaster Sky. O’Dowd has become a popular actor in Hollywood, performing in ‘Bridesmaids’ and ‘This is 40.’
