Irish government to appeal against Apple's €13bn tax bill
The Irish government has decided to appeal against the European commission's ruling that Apple was given a sweetheart tax deal and should hand Dublin €13bn (£11bn) in fiscal payments.

The cabinet decision still needs to be endorsed by parliament next Wednesday but a group of independents in the ruling coalition who were concerned about the appeal have already been won over.

"A motion will come before the Dáil [parliament] on Wednesday seeking an endorsement of that [cabinet] decision," a government spokesman said.
