Apple is gearing up to add another 1,000 employees in Ireland, and it's also expanding its headquarters in Cork to make room for the new crop, reports RTÉ. That would bring the company's total count of employees in Ireland up to 6,000, and it's an easy way for it to demonstrate its commitment to Ireland. That's particularly useful, now that the European Commission is probing into Apple's tax situation in the country, which has been criticized for being a bit too friendly (and illegal). Ireland plans to end Apple's tax deal in a few years, but it'll still have the benefit of fairly low corporate tax rates.
