The firm behind Eamon Dunphy's The Stand podcast recorded post tax profits of €108,963 last year.

New accounts filed by Dunphy’s Pepperwort Ltd show that the firm’s 2023 profits of €108,963 is a 5 per cent increase on the €103,595 profits for 2022.


The podcast generates its revenues from advertisers while subscribers can pay €5 (ex VAT) per month.

The current affairs, sport and culture podcast posts up to eight new episodes each week that includes Dunphy and his former RTÉ soccer pundit colleague, John Giles discussing the latest soccer results.

The Pepperwort accounts show that at the end of December last, the company was sitting on accumulated profits of €258,205 after a buoyant last two years.

In a busy year for the business, the company’s cash funds increased by almost €110,000 from €161,100 to €270,749.


Dunphy co-owns the company with his wife and Managing Director, Jane Gogan on a 50/50 basis and aggregate pay to directors last year increased marginally from €65,077 to €72,719.

The couple launched The Stand in November 2016.

The successful podcast venture is the latest chapter in the long and successful media career enjoyed by the former Irish soccer international, Dunphy who will celebrate a milestone 80th birthday in August of next year.

Dunphy is currently at work on the second half of his autobiography where the first volume, The Rocky Road, told his story up the 1990 World Cup and in a press interview last month, he said “the next part will be funnier and lighter”.

A note attached to the accounts states that the directors have a reasonable expectation that the company has adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future.

In 2022, Dunphy moved to voluntarily wind up his other media firm, Festuca Ltd and a liquidator’s final statement of account shows that there was €392,931 available to return to the firm’s shareholders after expenses were paid out.
