The Coalition partners – Fine Gael and the Labour Party – are still struggling to make any gains in the final days of the election campaign and are now extremely unlikely to return to power with a majority.

Fine Gael is unchanged at 30pc, while Labour is down one to 7pc

Fianna Fáil, up two points to 20pc, is making gains but is still some way off Fine Gael in the opinion poll carried out on behalf of Paddy Power.

Sinn Féin’s poll rating is continuing to drop after a series of controversies surrounding party leader Gerry Adams. Sinn Fein is down one point to 15pc.

Independents and smaller parties remain unchanged at 28pc.

This includes the Independent Alliance 2pc, Anti-Austerity Alliance-People Before Profit 3pc, Social Democrats 4pc, Renua 2pc and Green Party 3pc.

The levels of undecided voters has dropped significantly by four points to just 7pc.

The poll was taken between Thursday and Sunday last week.
