Taoiseach Enda Kenny has announced plans for a meeting of security agencies tomorrow morning. 

The talks come on the back of the attack in Manchester earlier this week which resulted in 22 confirmed fatalities. 

Responding to questions from Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin, Kenny said that a meeting will take place at 7.30am on Thursday. Agencies for defence, justice, transport and health are all expected to attend. 

According to RTÉ, Kenny also alluded to the possibility of the Government setting up a Security and Intelligence Unit:

"There is an issue here as to whether we should have a security and intelligence unit, separate from the way the structure currently operates and we will reflect on that.

"It's important for the Government to be able to give assurance to people that everything humanly possibly is done to protect innocent people and the citizens of our country."
