Enda Kenny's new line-up of candidates on the party website was followed by a file advertising: 'Explore your professional opportunity by a visit: New Armenian Business and Jobs Directories'.

Fine Gael's website was hacked a fortnight ago and has been the subject of plenty of commentary. Meanwhile, Fianna Fail attempted to increase the pressure on Mr Kenny by taking out a 'Google AdWords' advertisement.

It means that every person who types in phrases such as "leaders' debate" into the Google search engine will see a Fianna Fail ad saying "This is a once-in-a-generation election. It deserves real debate" and a link directing them to letters sent by Micheal Martin to Mr Kenny.
