We are looking for advice for putting together a board. Some advice from an organisation that has recently started and has put their board in place would be really useful.
Hopefully others will chime in here too, but we do also recommend you give BoardMatch Ireland a look, as they have a highly useful charity board recruitment service, which you can learn more about here: http://www.boardmatchireland.ie/information-for-not-for-profits/free-matching-service/
