Three actors from Mrs Brown's Boys have been named in the Paradise Papers.
The massive leak lifts the lid on the legal tax arrangements of the super rich.
According to the details published in the Irish Times, the three actors were paid through an offshore structure that sheltered them from paying income tax on hundreds of thousands of euro each.
The actors who made use of the structure are Fiona Delany, daughter of Brendan O’Carroll and who plays Maria Brown as well as her husband, Martin, who plays Fr Trevor Brown. Paddy Houlihan, who plays Dermot Brown in the hit comedy was also paid through the scheme.
Speaking for the group, Mr Houlihan says he was advised he would not have to pay tax on the money his agent paid into a trust in Mauritius until the money was paid to him in Ireland.
The money came from the massively popular stage shows and not from the TV production itself.
The show's creator and Fiona Delany's dad, Brendan O'Carroll, was not part of the scheme.
He says he and his wife Jennifer Gibney, or any company associated with Mrs Brown's Boys, had not been connected to the tax avoidance scheme and what happened to the money paid to the actors was beyond his or his company's control.
