As a general rule, most types of companies require two adult individuals to act as company directors in Ireland. The Irish legislation does not acknowledge corporate directors. According to Section 10 in the Company Act at least one of the directors must be an EU resident. In no EU resident director may be appointed a non-resident director bond must be deposited. The Irish company will also require a secretary.
