Micheál Martin’s party, who are holding their Ard Fheis this weekend, have regained support lost to Sinn Féin the last round of polls.

Both a Red C poll for the Sunday Business Post and a Behaviour and Attitudes poll for the Sunday Times show that Fine Gael are still the most popular party by a large margin.

However, their coalition partners in the Labour Party are still failing to make an impact with the electorate.

The Red C poll show Fine Gael on 30pc (-2), Labour 9pc (nc) Fianna Fail 19pc (+2) Sinn Fein 19pc and Independents 15 (+1).

While the Behaviour and Attitude poll shows Fine Gael with 31pc (nc), Fianna Fail 20pc (+1), Labour 6pc (-2), Sinn Fein 16pc (-1) and Independents  26 (+2).

It comes after Mr Martin again ruled out going into government with either Fine Gael or Sinn Fein.
