Social Protection Minister Leo Varadkar has begun personally texting and phoning constituents in a bid to prevent a 'Brexit'.

Mr Varadkar has also sent out hundreds of letters to constituents in his Dublin West constituency with a British connection urging a vote to remain.

Sources say the minister is making the calls and texts in a "non directive" way in a bid to inform constituents of the importance of the vote on June 23.

The news comes as Taoiseach Enda Kenny prepares to visit Liverpool and Manchester tomorrow as part of the campaign.

British Prime Minister David Cameron pulled pit of an engagement with Mr Kenny.
