The Cabinet will discuss the timeline for new abortion laws in the Dáil today.
Health Minister Simon Harris will introduce legislation before the summer recess, that could be passed by the end of the year.
The Oireachtas Health Committee is also expected to schedule extra sittings to bring in the changes as soon as possible.
The referendum on the Eighth Amendment saw the country vote by a landslide to repeal the measure on Friday - by 66.4% to 33.6%.

A spokesperson for Minister Harris said he met senior officials on Monday and will go to Cabinet today "with a timetable of next steps which will see the legislation published within six weeks."
He also intends to also meet the opposition and other stakeholders this week.
"Along with the legislation there are important things that need to progress at the same time like the regulation of abortion pills and development of clinical guidelines", the spokesperson added.
