The Cranberries, fronted by Dolores O'Riordan, continued to generate profits last year after a quarter of a century in the music business.

Last month, O'Riordan made headlines around the world following an alleged air rage incident on an Aer Lingus transatlantic flight that arrived into Shannon airport.

However, new figures show that the Limerick woman and her three Cranberries bandmates continued to appeal to adoring fans, boosting accumulated profits at the band's company by around €13,000 to €333,204 in 2013.

During the same period, the cash pile at her firm fell from €235,059 to €103,369. The band includes Noel Hogan, Mike Hogan and Fergal Lawler.

Last year, the three band members' firms each charged musician fees to Curtain Call ranging from €73,230 to €74,104.

That was less than the previous year when the three charged musician fees of €175,818.
