Accumulated profits at the movie firm owned by Co Kerry man and Hollywood star Michael Fassbender last year topped €580,000.

New figures show that the accumulated profits at Fassbender's Barrelmaker Promotions Ltd last year totalled £496,393 (€586,547).

Fassbender's status as a Hollywood actor went up a level last year when he played Steve Jobs in Danny Boyle's biopic of the Apple co-founder.

Fassbender has also secured a role in Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant - a sequel to the 2012 film Prometheus - due in 2017.

The cash pile at the firm declined from £533,688 to £494,009. Accumulated profits declined marginally, from £508,335 to £496,398.
