Irish bosses tops in UK

THE number of Irish directors in the UK has surpassed the 50,000 mark for the first time.

It means more than 16pc of UK directors are of Irish origin.

The Irish take first place in the league, with more than twice the number of directors from India, which took second place, according to the annual Foreign Directors Report 2014 carried out by Eulogy.
