A spokesperson for the company confirmed that an Bord Pleanala gave it planning permission for a 40-hectare expansion plan last Friday.

But the multinational's corporate office in Silicon Valley has not given the development the go-ahead.

The company has 10 years to act on the planning permission to build a 'fabrication facility", known as a Fab factory, to produce the next generation of computer chips, in Leixlip.

It is understood that the Leixlip plant is competing with other bases in Arizona and Israel for the new operation.
