Clients of the Lisa Richards Agency include Hollywood actor Cillian Murphy, creator of 'Gift Grub' Mario Rosenstock, and actor and author Amy Huberman. The firm -- based on Dublin's Upper Leeson Street -- also has on its books ex-Irish soccer international and pundit John Giles, 2FM's Hector O hEochagain, comedian Dara O'Briain and young actor Robert Sheehan of 'Love/Hate'.

Accounts just filed to the Companies Office show that the company's accumulated profits declined by €92,760 to €341,875 in the 12 months to the end of June last year.

A note attached to the abridged accounts for 2010 states: "Lisa Richards Ltd experienced a loss in 2010. The directors have adequately assessed the company's financial position and its cash requirements for the next 12 months and thus correctly prepared the accounts on a going-concern basis."

The Dublin-based talent agency, founded in 1989 by Lisa and Richard Cook, also represents a host of comedians -- including Des Bishop, Colin Murphy, PJ Gallagher and Neil Delamere.
