The feted director of 'Michael Collins' and 'The Crying Game' enjoyed a bumper year as accumulated profits at Jordan's Sunwind Enterprises rose from €1.889m to €2.32m.

The boost in the Sligo man's firm's fortunes followed the 2013 release of Mr Jordan's 'Byzantium', starring Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton.

In the year to the end of December last, the firm's cash pile increased from €2.583m to €3.012m.

The amount paid to the firm's directors, Neil Jordan and his wife, Brenda, last year totalled €130,000.

The firm employs three people and the accounts show that €136,464 was paid to the three employees made up of two directors and one administrative employee.

Mr Jordan's coffers have also been boosted recently by him overseeing the historical fiction drama, 'The Borgias'.

The Irish director shot three series of the drama starring Oscar winner Jeremy Irons.
