In a new report from Ireland today, the news is more definitive noting that "In a statement, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said the discussions in the company's HQ in California had been very constructive.


The statement said Apple had agreed to continue to consider Athenry in the context of their future business plans. However, Mr Varadkar told RTÉ News that the Athenry data centre project has not been confirmed by Apple."


That does indeed sound as if the current project is likely toast because it took too long to get approval. Below are photos of Ireland's PM meeting with Apple's CEO Tim Cook outside the older Apple HQ building in Cupertino last Thursday.
