Mr Kenny has been subjected to a number of joke calls since his number was published on social media sites, but he is adamant he will keep his line open and accessible. 

During a speech in America over St. Patrick’s weekend, he declared: “My number is a public number, you can call me anytime”. And people have been doing just that.

“Now you are living proof that if you want to contact the Taoiseach, it can be done,” he told one reporter who called him yesterday.
