COPPER FACE JACKS nightclub made a pre-tax profit of more than €15,000 every day last year, new accounts reveal.

The nightclub – part of the Jackson Court Hotel complex – had a total operating profit of more than €5.5million in 2013.

Accounts filed by its parent company, Breanagh Catering Ltd, show that after tax the company took profits of around €4.5million. Its two directors paid themselves more than €50,000 a month – a figure that dropped significantly from the previous year.

After a good year’s trading, Breanagh Catering said it had cash reserves of more than €46million on hand at the beginning of 2014.
