"...there is a shortage of infrastructure and services and the indigenous workforce does not always have the training required..."


As someone who has worked in IT in the Republic of Ireland I know that there are plenty of skilled people and resources to do the job.

Don't forget that Dell, Apple and so on have sites there and the pool of talent is constantly refreshed by the excellent education Ireland provides.

Ireland has close links with the US, just look at the number of Green cards allocated to Ireland. Also with the likes of Shannon and Dublin Airports travel is straightforward.

True the population is a tad small but with the advantage of the English language and the close US ties I see no obstacle to many more US companies moving across the Irish Sea.

Oh, a last thought. The 12.5% corporate tax rate helps as well. If you even pay that as Apple has so ably demonstrated.
