The new cabinet meets for the first time today, with the line up for junior ministerial positions high on the agenda.

An announcement is expected later on the new ranks, with a number of promotions and demotions expected.

It's already been confirmed that former Arts Minister Jimmy Deenihan will be given a role responsible for the diaspora, while Labour's Ged Nash has been promoted to a so-called 'super-junior' position at the Department of Enterprise and Employment.

There's no indication yet as to whether Donegal South West Deputy Dinny Mc Ginley, currently a Junior MInister in the Department of Arts Heritage and the Gaeltacht, will remain a minister after today.

He told Highland Radio News this morning he's had no discussions on the issue with the Taoiseach or anyone else, and declined to speculate on what may happen today.
