This chapter explores the impact of debates about control of taxation policy on the Irish–EU relationship. This is a debate which touches strongly on issues of economic nationalism, and again it particularly reflects Ireland’s reputation as the ‘state that is perhaps more closely allied than any other democracy with the interests of global transnational corporations’ (Fintan O’Toole, Irish Times, 30 August 2016). The chapter includes consideration of the controversial Apple case which brought the Irish government into conflict with the European Commission.
