14 pictures that prove Enda Kenny loves to lob the gob

Everyone from his wife to Angela Merkel. Our Enda loves a bit of smooching.

IN THE COURSE of our work we have to look at a lot of pictures of Enda Kenny getting up to all sorts.

Recently we noticed there are quite a few pictures of the Taoiseach planting the lips on various female cheeks down the years.

Given that we expect to see a lot of him kissing babies during the election campaign we thought we’d prepare you by sharing some of our favourite Enda kissing pics from down the years…
