Income at the five-star Muckross Park Hotel in Killarney doubled during its first year in receivership, according to a report in today's Irish Examiner.
Revenue for the 2012 financial year topped €5.4 million, more than double the €2.77 million it recorded in 2011 - the last year in which Bill Cullen's company filled accounts for the hotel.
Cullen, the businessman and reality TV star, along with his partner Jackie Nevin, lost control of the Muckross Park Hotel in a court battle with ACC bank last year.
