A busy new political term kicks off later today as the Dáil returns from its summer recess.
The Dáil has not sat for more than eight weeks and TDs will return to life in Leinster House this afternoon.
Brexit will be the dominant issue of this Dáil term.
TDs will debate the issue tomorrow evening, while the Tánaiste will update the Cabinet on the state of play this morning.
Simon Coveney's focus over the coming weeks will be on making sure the public and businesses are aware of what they need to do if there is no deal.
The Government's hosting a number of Brexit seminars at the National Ploughing Championships, which are getting underway in Co Carlow this morning.
The ongoing beef protests will is also high on the agenda this week, and the state of the beef sector will be debated in the Dáil chamber this afternoon.
Last night, Agriculture Minister Michael Creed posted an open letter to protesting farmers - urging them to give an agreement reached over the weekend a chance:

Budget 2020 is also going to be a hot topic of discussion in Leinster House, with just three weeks until Paschal Donohoe reveals his plans for the coming year.
It has already been confirmed this year's Budget will be prepared on the assumption of a no-deal Brexit, with the specifics set to be detailed early next month.
TDs returning to Dublin also know there is an election looming in the not too distant future - with the Taoiseach already having suggested May as a likely polling date.
