The Environment Minister Alan Kelly says he wants to get to the bottom of the issue of insurance companies refusing to give cover for flooding.
The Minister and the Taoiseach will meet with representatives from the insurance sector next week to discuss the current spell of flooding.
Yesterday, the Government announced a range of measures aimed at repairing roads, homes and businesses affected, and plans to prevent such a disastrous situation from ever happening again.
Money has been earmarked for the establishment of a specialised flood prediction service, to be run by Met Eireann and the Office of Public Works.
Minister Kelly says insurance companies have questions to answer when it comes to cover for flooding.
He said: "We need to meet the Insurance Federation and insurance companies, because in some parts of Ireland flood defences have been put in place but people are telling us they can't get insurance.
"We need to get to the bottom of this, we need to get to the truth, and that's what I - working with the Taoiseach and other ministers - will be doing next week."
