Intel is planning an $8 billion new manufacturing facility in Ireland
While this will be Ireland’s largest-ever private investment, there’s some doubt that Intel can pull it off. “We’ve been here before with other companies, which didn’t get over the line,” said an anonymous council member that is reviewing the blueprints. Apple, in particular, has announced large expansions in the country which it backed out from at the last minute.

My main guess is, so they can sell stuff directly to the Israel government and military and get access to certain stuff (no idea what stuff).
Nuff said (meanwhile Intel buyers pay the bill)

Some of the best INTEL chips have come from ...wait for it ... ISRAEL.
The facilities are underground and some of the smartest people in the world work there.
I thought you said "and some of the shortest people in the world work there" and had a chuckle.

Because the underground rooms wouldn't be roomy.

I think I just set a new record for the number of times the word stupid has been used in reference to one of my comments in a single thread.

This. Presumably they're matching the Israeli site investment to the one in Arizona they sunk $5B into ~2011(?), and $7B in the last ~year for 10nm+ tech. There is no other US site that they can invest in that they haven't already.

Anyone wondering why they didn't do this in the US, maybe this will help:
Israel - does chip design (pre-tape out, no direct interaction with their fab) RnD AND they have a high volume factory.
Oregon - Does fab RnD in lower volume and makes it physically work (or tries - 10nm). Might be a chip design RnD team here too but as others have said, Israels team is pretty killer.
Az/Ireland do high volume production after Oregon gets the nodes quirks manufacturable and helps push yields along with volume.

Design RnD (IS/OR/maybe CA) --> OR fab RnD --> AZ/Ireland/Israel fabs for high volume.
