2 Having made such further investigation and reviewed such other documents as we have considered requisite or desirable, subject to the foregoing and to the within qualifications and assumptions, and provided that the Registration Statement, as finally amended, has become effective, we are of the opinion that; 1 the Ordinary Shares have been duly authorised and when issued, in accordance with the Registration Statement, the Plan and the options or other equity awards granted or to be granted thereunder will, be validly issued, fully paid and not subject to calls for any additional payments (“non-assessable”) (except for Ordinary Shares issued pursuant to deferred payment arrangements, which shall be fully paid upon the satisfaction of such payment obligations); 2 the obligations of the Company under the Plan have been duly authorised by all necessary corporate action on behalf of the Company; 3 in any proceedings taken in Ireland for the enforcement of the Plan, the choice of Minnesota State law as the governing law of the contractual rights and obligations of the parties under the Plan would be upheld by the Irish Courts unless it were considered contrary to public policy, illegal, or made in bad faith. In rendering this opinion we have confined ourselves to matters of Irish law. We express no opinion on any laws other than the laws of Ireland (and the interpretation thereof) in force as at the date hereof. We hereby consent to the filing of this Opinion with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission as an exhibit to the Registration Statement. Yours faithfully A&L Goodbody M-38460763-3
