Public levels of satisfaction with the Government have dropped over the course of the local and European election campaigns, the Irish Independent/Millward Brown poll reveals.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny, Fianna Fail leader Micheal Martin and Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams have all also suffered a drop in their satisfaction rating.

The Government's rating has also fallen in the wake of the garda controversies, the resignation of former Justice Minister Alan Shatter and the announcement of the water charges.

Just one in five people is now satisfied with the Government's performance, down four points in the past three weeks alone.

Dissatisfaction has risen five points to 76pc.

Mr Kenny's rating has fallen to 29pc, down two points, but Tanaiste Eamon Gilmore's rating has risen one point to 19pc.

Mr Martin has been hit by the largest fall in satisfaction: six points, leaving him at 28pc.

Mr Adams's satisfaction rating is down five points to 29pc.
