    Not sure about Irish regs. Maybe you need permission to do this?
    Maybe better to post in Electrics Outside of UK??

    Under normal Irish regulations you would need to lay red ducting underground from the main house to the outbuilding and put down the appropriate 'burried cables' markers etc.

    Normally, neutral shielded cable's used.

    The out building would typically be supplied with a single circuit feeding a subpanel. The usual requirements for RCD protection etc apply and a main fuse / breaker, rated at the maximum load for the panel is required as per usual in Irish installations.

    I would strongly advise that you get a local electrician involved in this as it's too complicated to do as a DIY job. Depending on the type of earthing system in use, there can be all sorts of complications too.
