Brexit, a rise in rent allowance and re-opening rural garda stations are on the agenda for this morning’s cabinet meeting.
The Taoiseach will bring a memo on the implications of the British vote before he attends today’s EU summit.
The cabinet meeting begins early this morning at 7.30am to allow the Taoiseach to travel to Brussels for a crisis meeting of EU states.
Ministers will discuss the possible fallout for Ireland from the leave vote.
A move aimed at tackling homelessness will also be discussed.
The cabinet is expected to agree to a rise in rent supplement and housing assistance payments which will kick in next week.
The Justice Minister is also bringing forward a proposal to open some of the closed garda stations on a trial basis.
Six stations will be re-opened and monitored to see if they have an impact on local crime levels.
Also on a busy agenda is Mick Wallace’s abortion bill, which would see terminations allowed in cases of fatal foetal abnormality.
The cabinet will receive legal advice on whether the bill is constitutional.
