Irish gardaí police are investigating an apparent death threat made against Taoiseach Enda Kenny on a Facebook page aiming to save a hospital from closure.

Threat: Irish Taoiseach Enda Kenny

The would-be assasin is said to have threatened to gun Kenny down 'JFK-style', according to the Irish Sun.

Assistant to the Taoiseach, Ger Deere, called the gardaí after the comment was posted on the 'Save the Sacred Heart Hospital Castlebar' page on 18 May and a man was later questioned in County Mayo.

The director of public prosecutions will decide whether charges are brought against the individual.
