Sinn Féin are down one point to 17pc and there is a two-point drop for Labour which now stands at 5pc.

A one-point drop for the unaligned Independents leaves them on 11pc and the Independent Alliance is unchanged on 4pc.

The AAA-PBP drop two points to stand at 2pc. The Greens are also on 2pc.

Support for the Social Democrats measured at below 1pc in this poll.

The Workers Party are on 3pc and Renua are on 1pc.
