Accumulated profits at the entertainment firm owned by Brendan Gleeson dropped 23pc last year to €262,733.

Confirmation of the downturn in profits at Gleeson's firm follows reports that he has paid close for €3m for a modern mansion in Howth, Co Dublin. The 57-year-old actor, who sold his family home in Malahide in Dublin for a little over €900,000 recently, is said to be the new buyer of Danesrock in Howth's Bailey area.

The Dublin native has been the star of 'Gangs of New York', 'In Bruges', 'Braveheart' and 'The Guard'. The former secondary school teacher, who also featured in the Harry Potter films, is expected to add to his coffers this year with the upcoming release of 'Calvary' that reunites Gleeson with the director of 'The Guard', John Michael McDonagh. Gleeson plays a priest in the lead role in the movie and is joined by Chris O'Dowd, Kelly Reilly and Aidan Gillen.

Gleeson won an Emmy for his performance playing Winston Churchill in 'Into The Storm'.
