TAOISEACH Enda Kenny delighted an Irish barman in Manchester when he posed for a 'selfie' with the young emigrant yesterday.

Mayo-born barman Fabian Bohan-Taghian took out his smartphone as he served the Irish VIP.

Mr Kenny gamely obliged when asked by the Irishman to join his group 'selfie' shot.

The Taoiseach was sampling the delights of an Irish Coffee bar outside the front of Manchester Town Hall at the beginning of a two-day visit to Britain.

THUMBS-UP

The barman served up a coffee to the Irish leader who refused an offer of a tot of whiskey. The taoiseach gave a thumbs-up gesture and a smile as the barman and colleagues crammed into the shot.

Mr Kenny was due to go to London today for a meeting with Prime Minister David Cameron. He will travel to Washington later this week to meet President Barack Obama as part of the St Patrick's Day festivities.

Both Mr Cameron and Mr Obama recently hit the headlines with a 'selfie' of their own when they put their heads together with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at a memorial service for Nelson Mandela.

Mr Kenny has usually displayed a willing to be 'up for' any amount of photographs when the occasion calls. At a major ladies' football finals event at Croke Park last September, he was captured 'photobombing' two women sitting in front of him in the stadium.
