Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It is of course not factually inaccurate, the tax rate is low, did start the trend to lower corporate tax rates in europe and does attract a lot of foreign companies qho use ireland as a tax haven.

You may assert something else, but that doesn't change the facts.

Being at tax haven isn't a sustainable growth path either.

And as Bofinger pointed out, the tax level of ireland is below the european average. A lot. They only collect something about 35% and would need more then 40%.

And stop lying. I didn't wrote anything about "pay back their national debt". -You even used quotation marks, but that is not even a paraphrase of anything I did ever write.
