KBC Bank Ireland is expected to announce its plans here when it publishes results on Thursday.

Management at KBC Group in Brussels has said it will formally communicate a decision on the future of its Irish operations at the same time they publish financial results for 2016.

Elsewhere, a delegation from the Joint Committee on European Union Affairs will visit Brussels this week to hold talks on a range of issues under the committee's remit, including the Irish impact of the UK's decision to withdraw from the European Union.

During the visit, committee members will meet with Michel Barnier, EU Commission chief negotiator, Guy Verhofstadt, European Parliament representative on Brexit, Agriculture Commissioner Phil Hogan, Emily O'Reilly, European Ombudsman, and Ireland's ambassador to the EU Declan Kelleher.

Elsewhere, two further sectoral Brexit events will be held by the Government today, including one on energy led by Communications Minister Denis Naughten, in Roscommon, and a second one by Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs Minister Heather Humphreys in Cavan.
