The President is raising concerns about the amount of complex legislation he's being asked to consider.

Michael D. Higgins feels he has had to do a lot in a very short space of time.

The 80 year old has written to the Oireachtas to express his concerns.

He's explained 19 bills had to be considered in the first three weeks of this month.

President Higgins says nine were given to him on one day alone.

He says he's concerned about the pattern of giving him lots of legislation just before the Dáil recess.
