The Taoiseach has criticised much of the commentary around Ireland's corporate tax rate.
Speaking at the second EU Asia conference in Dublin, Enda Kenny defended our tax regime again - after a US Senate Committee heard that Ireland had agreed a special tax rate with the computer giant Apple.
The Taoiseach said the Irish tax regime is fully transparent - and hit out at reports surrounding the Senate Committee's findings.
"Unfortunately much of that comment has been ill-informed and misrepresented and we have always prided ourselves here on having an open and a transparent taxation system," he said
"The basis of our transparent system is that our tax system is statute based so there is no possibility of individual special tax rate deals for companies."
