dc.description.abstract This research analyses corporate governance practices as disclosed in the annual reports of Irish companies. In particular the paper investigates: Independence of boards; Separation of the role of chairman and chief executive; Presence of board sub-committees; Women on boards. The study is based on a sample of 84 Irish quoted and commercial semi-state companies. Significant improvements were found in corporate governance practices compared with similar earlier studies. Most Irish companies comply with the Cadbury Committee recommendations. Nonetheless there is some evidence of non-compliance. There is evidence that women continue to be under-represented on boards of Irish companies. en
