After hearing of how an Irish company can be domiciled for tax purposes in no country, the Irish gov (which also needs money badly) is looking at that and going to see if they could say for example if you have no other domicile where you pay taxes then if you are an Irish company pay Ireland. While thats not 35% it would be 12%. Actually the whole issue is a world wide move to crack down on tax avoidance schemes. Other parts include the breaking of swiss bank secrecy, putting pressure on Caribbean tax havens and the like.
