The PR fiasco over the handling of the Katherien Zappone will dominate talks.

Fine Gael TDs, Senators and MEPs will gather in Meath today for a two-day think-in ahead of the Dáil's return.

The Party's handling of the Katherine Zapppone debacle is expected to be raised as the Government faces in to a no-confidence motion in Simon Coveney.

Think-ins usually take place to plan strategy in the Dail for the months ahead but his one will be dominated by a number of issues that are causing concern in the Party.
