Apple CEO Tim Cook visited Ireland today, speaking at the company’s Irish facilities and meeting with government officials including Prime Minister Enda Kenny. Cook’s visit focused on Apple’s future plans for its operations in Ireland, TheJournal.ie reports.
Speaking at Apple’s Hollyhill campus in Cork, which Apple has used as its Irish hub for decades, Cook discussed the company’s future plans. Later in the day Prime Minister Kenny reportedly toured the facility with Cook.
It’s unclear if Cook and Kenny touched on Apple’s tax practices in Ireland, but the Irish Prime Minister denied making any deals with the company or any others concerning the country’s notorious corporate tax policies. Last year Apple was dragged into the U.S. Senate to explain its tax practices, though little came from the hearing.
