The Cabinet meets today for the first time since the summer recess - with the focus likely to be the finding in the Fennelly report that former Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan resigned of his own accord.
The Commission's report said Enda Kenny did not force Mr Callinan (pictured) to quit, but that the Taoiseach's sending a top civil servant to his home was a "catalyst" for the decision.
Sinn Féin said the Taoiseach and Attorney General should resign, and that the Dáil should be recalled early next week to discuss issues raised in the report.
Meanwhile, the Irish Council for Civil Liberties has called on the Justice Minister to implement her promised "sea change" in policing, as recommended in the Fennelly report.
Executive director Mark Kelly said root-and-branch reform of policing should include the appointment of a permanent Secretary General at the Department of Justice.
"It's frankly quite astonishing that 18 months after the events that led to the precipitous departure of the previous Secretary General at the Department of Justice, there is still no permanent replacement," he said.
"So there's nobody effectively, permanently in charge to lead root-and-branch reform on behalf of the Minister."
Special Correspondent with the Irish Examiner Mick Clifford said the Taoiseach's handling of a number of issues needed further explanation, including his preference for Mr Callinan to leave office immediately, rather than three months later.
