That's nice… the success of Brendan O'Carroll's foul-mouthed Agnes Brown last year resulted in accumulated profits at his main firm climbing to more than €1.6m.

New accounts filed show that O'Carroll's firm, Mrs Brown's Boys Ltd, increased its accumulated profits by just over €700,000 - going from €959,404 to €1.66m.

O'Carroll's creation 'Mrs Brown's Boys' was again a Christmas ratings winner in Ireland and the UK with nine million viewers watching the Christmas Day edition of the comedy on the BBC.

The new accounts for Mrs Brown's Boys Ltd filed to the Companies Office show that the cash pile at the firm increased more than six-fold, going from €162,403 to €1.089m in 2015.

O'Carroll was able to add to his coffers in 2015 with six sell-out performances of the 'How Now Mrs Brown Cow' tour at the 3Arena in Dublin.

The proceeds of one matinee performance went to three charities that included the Society of St Vincent de Paul.
