All eyes will be on Dublin today as British Prime Minister Theresa May travels to Dublin to hold a summit with Taoiseach Enda Kenny about the UK's exit from the European Union.

The Brexit meeting comes ahead of the British government triggering the formal Article 50 exit mechanism at the end of March.

Tomorrow, European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager, who has staunchly defended her findings that Ireland granted billions of euro in illegal State aid to Apple, will address the Oireachtas Finance Committee.

Greencore Group plc will also hold its AGM.

Following a tumultuous first week in office by US President Donald Trump, the US Federal Reserve's latest rate decision will be announced on Wednesday.

While there is little chance that interest rates will be increased, markets will be monitoring tone and looking for any warnings that a tax cuts agenda could trigger a faster pace of rate increases.

On Thursday, the Bank of England will announce its latest monetary policy, a significant meeting as the bank publishes its latest inflation report.
