Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael are almost neck-and-neck in the latest opinion poll after Taoiseach Enda Kenny this week saw off a potential leadership heave from his party members.

There is only two points between the parties with Fianna Fail down one to 26pc and Fine Gael unchanged at 24pc.

The Red C/Sunday Business Post findings follow a series of opinion polls which showed Fianna Fail surging a head of Fine Gael in terms of public support.

Last weekend, the Sunday Independent/Kantar Millward Brown opinion poll found Fianna Fail (33pc) had an eight point lead on Fine Gael (25pc)

Meanwhile, tonight’s opinion poll shows Sinn Fein has increased its support five points to 19pc while Independents are down four points to 10pc.

The Labour Party is down one point to 4pc, Anti-Austerity Alliance- People Before Profit are up two points to 6pc and the Independent Alliance is unchanged at 3pc.

The Social Democrats are down one to 3pc, the Green Party is unchanged at 4pc and Renua remains on 1pc.
