The Taoiseach and Tánaiste will resume talks on the renewal of the Government and the Cabinet reshuffle later today.
Enda Kenny and Joan Burton have so far kept advisors from the discussions.
Both are understood to have gone through key priorities and have yet to agree on any reshuffle.
That is not now expected before tomorrow, partly because Finance Minister Michael Noonan is in Brussels on Government business until this evening.
Meanwhile, the outgoing Cabinet will meet for the final time this morning.
