Irish government agrees to appeal EU Apple tax ruling

Irish cabinet supports appeal of EU Apple tax ruling

Ireland's coalition government on Friday agreed to appeal against a multi-billion-euro back tax demand that the European Commission has slapped on iPhone maker Apple after independent members of the cabinet gave their backing, a spokesman said.

"A motion will come before the Dail (parliament) on Wednesday seeking an endorsement of that decision," the government spokesman said.
