FINE Gael has jumped three points in the latest opinion poll but Fianna Fail is still the most popular party in the country.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny’s party is up to 26pc in the poll while Micheal Martin’s Fianna Fail is up one point to 27pc.

Sinn Fein has taken a hit and dropped a point 16pc and Labour is up one but still at just 5pc.

Independents are down two points to 8pc, while Shane Ross’s Independent Alliance is down one point to 7pc, according the Sunday Times/Behaviour and Attitude poll.

The Anti-Austerity Alliance-People Before Profit is on 4pc, the Green Party 4pc, the Social Democrats 2pc and the Workers Party 1pc.

The poll was taken between May 1 and 11 - just before and after Mr Kenny was appointed Taoiseach.
