Speaking at the announcement of 85 new jobs at security firm Netwatch, Mr Kenny said the reality TV star would have been safe in Ireland.

“There was a good lady robbed in Paris the other day of jewellery. Maybe if they had employed Netwatch they mightn’t have been robbed at all.

“Send her a message and say ‘over here we’ll mind you’,” he told a receptive audience in Dublin.

Ms Kardashian was robbed by five armed men wearing ski masks and police clothing.

They reportedly handcuffed the star and held her at gunpoint in a plush city apartment at 3am.

She “begged for her life” and told the raiders that she had two children to take of.

The men stole a jewellery box worth €6m and a ring worth €4m.

Her husband, rapper Kanye West, was on stage at a concert in New York when he learned of the robbery.

He immediately cancelled the gig.
