The problem is that within a trading block any state-aid that benefits one company over another is illegal.. so, for example, the fact that the French government subsidised the development costs of nuclear power stations that then benefitted EDF was deemed illegal.

Apple aren't blameless in this either - they explicitly asked for the tax deal and were touting it around multiple EU countries before the got agreement from Ireland.
