I am an Australian, looking to move to Ireland on a Working Holiday Authorization. My question is not taxation related.
Can I possibly work for my company in Australia remotely (over the internet) while living in Ireland on a WHA, or is it a visa requirement to work for a company in Ireland?
I presumed WHA gives one the right to work, but one could technically live there without work too as long as one can prove that they have sufficient funds? But, I read some conflicting information over the internet.

There is no legal requirement for you to work for an Irish based company. You may need to talk to an accountant about where you will be tax-resident if working for an Australian company remotely in Ireland.
This should still not preclude you from travelling to Ireland on a WHA, the primary purpose of which is for an extended holiday allowing for casual work to support oneself.
