Other production companies that claimed tax reliefs last year across their TV & Film output included:

Abú Media which received between €500k - €1m back for ‘An Klondike’ Season 2, the IFTA award- winning Irish language drama series currently airs on TG4 and follows the story of the Connolly brothers as they struggle to forge an empire for themselves during the Klondike gold rush of the 1890’s.

Blinder Films, received tax relief between €2m - €5m for its production of RTÉ One legal drama series ‘Striking Out’ starring Amy Huberman. It also received tax relief of less than €500k for its project ‘Grace Jones: The Musical of My Life’.

‘Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope’ another TV show starring Amy Huberman and written by Stefanie Preissner for RTÉ 2, made by Deadpan Pictures is listed as receiving less than €500k back in tax relief.

The Breadwinner’ by Cartoon Saloon which credits Angelina Jolie as an Executive Producer on the animation received between €1m - €2m.

Element Pictures who made ‘Rebellion’ the 1916 drama for RTÉ One, received between €1m-€2m back in tax relief for the project.
