Please beare in mind, that to set-up a company in Ireland you need to have at least one director one secretary (separate person) and a shareholder (who can be a company director), and your director needs to be the EU resident, or resident of Republic of ireland. In the case, if none of your directors are EU or Irish residents, you need to pay the insurance bond, and in such situation, your business entity cannot be desided as the local company for the tax-purpose.
To register the private company in Ireland you need a constitution, as well as other basic documents that can be drafted on your behalf as part of an Irish company registration package. You also need a company secretary, as well as one shareholder.
