Accumulated profits at the entertainment firm owned by Donegal crooner Daniel O'Donnell jumped by almost €690,000 to €4.33m last year.

New accounts lodged to the Companies Office show that DOD Promotions Ltd enjoyed a buoyant year in the 12 months to the end of October 2020, when accumulated profits at the company increased from €3.64m to €4.33m.

The profits of €688,674 in the 12 months to the end of October of last year is a marginal increase on the profits of €659,569 recorded in the prior year.

The period includes the first eight months of the Covid-19 pandemic here.

The value of the firm’s current assets, made up of cash and debtors, increased €1.39m to €1.74m.

The value of the firm’s fixed assets increased during the period from €2.3m to €2.6m.

The company generates the greatest bulk of its income from live performance and the 59 year old - like every other live performer - has seen his live income decimated since March of last year due to Covid-19.

However, that did not stop the singer delighting cocooning residents of care homes in Co Donegal with a series of open air surprise - and free - performances during lockdown.

However, with the vaccination programme advancing, Mr O'Donnell is now busy preparing for a series of UK live dates in the autumn.

The entertainer also has pencilled in dates for the US in November and December.

During the pandemic, Daniel has been forced to cancel a planned tour of Australia, New Zealand and Tasmania.

Those dates are to be re-scheduled for 2022.

During the pandemic, the singer also kept in touch with his fan base by appearing live via Facebook on a regular basis.

The abridged accounts for DOD Promotions Ltd do not provide a profit and loss account that would include a turnover figure or what dividend, if any, was paid to O'Donnell.

During his lucrative career spanning over three decades, Daniel O’Donnell has sold more than 10 million records.
