Carlow company Netwatch announced 85 new jobs today
The Taoiseach has suggested that Kim Kardashian would not have been robbed if she was using an Irish tech security firm.
Earlier this week, the reality TV star was robbed at gunpoint of millions of euro worth of jewellery while she was staying in Paris.
Five masked and armed men were involved in the raid and escaped with a jewellery box containing a ring worth €4m, as well as other valuables worth between €5m and €6m.
Enda Kenny made the comments about the robbery as Carlow company Netwatch announced 85 new jobs.
Netwatch says it monitors more than 42,000 security cameras at commercial and residential sites around the world from its Communications Hub in Carlow.
He told people to send a message to the Kardashians, saying "we will mind you".
"I was going to say there was a good lady robbed in Paris of jewellery," he said. "Maybe if they had employed Netwatch..."
