Another example of EU membership impacting a country's sovereignty to govern.
Is it really though? You could probably argue that it should be Ireland's sovereign choice if they want to be allowed to offer individual companies individual tax arrangements, although if they wish to be part of an trading block or trade treaty, that is obviously a no-no. I would also suspect that Irish companies would be well within their rights to take their government to task about unfair competition.

What is more cut and dried is that no country should allow (read as: encourage) companies to wash the profits generated from sales in other countries through their ropey tax system and expect nobody to complain.
