The brothers, 'Enda' and 'Simon' - healthy bull calves - were born just minutes before Mr Kenny arrived at David Richardson's farm near Tullow, Co Carlow.

Mr Kenny and Minister Coveney were visiting to launch Fine Gael's jobs plan for rural Ireland.

David's son Mark had just helped deliver the calves before they arrived.

Mr Kenny and Mr Coveney did the honours and tagged the calves while someone asked: "What'll we called them?"

"Enda and Simon," came the reply from Fine Gael MEP Sean Kelly.

On the serious business of the morning, Mr Kenny gave details of his party's 'Regional Action Plan for Jobs' where they want to bring unemployment below 7pc in all regions.

Fine Gael want to increase agri-food industry exports by 85pc to €19bn by 2025 and deliver 23,000 new jobs.
