Taoiseach Leo Varadkar carried out out a whistle-stop tour of South Kildare yesterday and had a busy itinerary in Athy and Newbridge.
The Fine Gael leader officially cut the tape on TD Martin Heydon's new constituency office in Athy.
He also took the time to meet local councillors including Cllr Ivan Keatley as well as a cross-section of community groups.
Mr Heydon said: "I was delighted to welcome Taoiseach Leo Varadkar to Athy today to officially open my office on Leinster Street."
He added: "Following a briefing from senior officials from Kildare Co Council on the Southern Distributor Route, he also reaffirmed this Governments commitment to fund this badly-needed ring road to completion, allowing the Council to proceed with the next steps."
In Newbridge, meetings were organised in the refurbished Town Hall with Hope (D), St Vincent de Paul and the Samaritans.
He was also entertained by the Patrician Primary School Band.
However while on the road, the Taoiseach's entourage stopped to take a photo of a pack of llamas.
While the Taoiseach was posing for a photo, one animal strutted its way into the frame.
The Fine Gael leader quipped on Twitter: "Managed to get photobombed by a llama in Kildare today."
