Fianna Fail has seen a drop in public support for the first-time since the general election, according to the latest opinion poll.

Micheál Martin's party is still the most popular in the country with 27pc of the vote but it has dropped two points since the last poll.

Fine Gael has dropped a point to 25pc and is continuing to trail behind Fianna Fail.

Sinn Féin has seen a slight rise in support and is up two points to 15pc.  The Labour Party is up one point to 7pc, while the Anti Austerity Alliance-People Before Profit is also up one to 6pc.

The Independent Alliance is down one to 4pc while the Green Party is down two points to 2pc.

The Social Democrats remain unchanged at 4pc, despite recently losing Wicklow TD Stephen Donnelly.

After losing public support after the general election, non-aligned Independents have recovered slightly and are up three points to 10pc.
