As many twenty junior ministers could be appointed this week.
Taoiseach Micheal Martin announced his 14 strong cabinet line-up on Saturday while he also named three "super juniors".
There was widespread criticism of the lack of women and regional spread in his appointments, while a number of former ministers and hopefuls were left empty handed.
This week's announcement is expected to address some of these concerns.
Meanwhile the new Seanad is to sit today with 11 nominees appointed by the Taoiseach.
