The Dáil is due to take a two-week break today to allow TDs to canvass voters ahead of the re-run of the Lisbon Treaty referendum.
The House only reconvened last week after its lengthy summer break and will now be in recess again until October 6.
The latest break was planned a number of months ago to give the main parties time to push for a 'yes' vote in the Lisbon referendum.
The Taoiseach has a busy schedule of campaigning in the coming days, including a visit to Galway tomorrow and Donegal on Saturday.
He will also hold a press conference in Dublin on Sunday before visiting Clare on Monday.
