Re: "the country has an advantageous business and digital tax environment"
If this doesnt wake them up nothing will (the Irish gov). By now businesses are surely waking up to the fact that the EU is not on their side, but that wet dream of Ireland being under Irish rule has been kicked hard. One thing I had hoped for brexit was that the EU and UK could come to an agreement of treating Ireland as a middle ground (it already is anyway). If they could continue trade and have the 2 different regimes they would be a thriving country both in and out of the EU, part of the EU project and part of the global community.
