If low corporate tax rates are so good

Apple set-up companies in Ireland in order to protect the company from having to pay higher taxes elsewhere.

If low corporate tax rates are such a good thing, then why isn't Ireland the largest economic country in the free world?

In fact, looking at the GDP in Ireland, over the past five years, I see a lot of negative growth-

Why is the economy so much stronger in the US, where we have the highest corporate tax rate?
