Fine Gael has dropped a point to 29pc, while Labour is up a point to 10pc but on the current figures it would be impossible for the Coalition partners to form a government.

Fianna Fail’s election hopes have suffered yet another set back after dropping two points to 17pc – the same percentage the party received in its disastrous 2011 General Election.

Meanwhile, Sinn Fein is stagnant at 19pc while Independent/Others have seen their support edge up by two points to 25pc, according to the latest Sunday Business/Red C opinion poll.
