Ireland's best known talent agency, which counts Pierce Brosnan and Laura Whitmore, inset, among its clients returned to profit last year.

New accounts lodged by Lisa Richards Ltd show that accumulated profits jumped from €231,991 to €273,975 in the 12 months to the end of June 30 last.

The Dublin and London-based agency represents some of Ireland's best known stars 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 Aidan Murphy, who have received rave notices for their roles in TV dramas 'Peaky Blinders' and 'Poldark'.

The profit last year is the culmination of the firm's strategy of expanding into Europe and the UK.

The firm's cash pile rose from €171,602 to €181,088.
