The Coalition remains a long way from being re-elected as the latest poll shows a dip in support for the ruling parties.

A new Paddy Power/Red C poll suggests Fine Gael is down one point in recent weeks, with support for Labour slipping by two since Sunday.

More worrying perhaps for Enda Kenny and Joan Burton, election rivals Fianna Fáil are up by one and support for Sinn Féin remains unchanged.

The details of the poll were announced on RTÉ's Today with Sean O'Rourke earlier today.

The findings show Fine Gael at 30 pc, Labour at 8 pc, Fianna Fáil at 18 pc, Sinn Féin on 17 pc, Green Party 2 pc (no change) and Independents/ Others at 25 pc, up by two points.

The figures are sure to disappoint Labour as the party has dropped back from the 10 pc support recorded in the most recent Red C polls.
