Labour also go up 3 to 10% - again it is been a year since the party had double digit support.

Fianna Fáil support remains unchanged at 18%, while Sinn Féin support falls by four points to 17%, with the poll coming in the wake of further sex abuse allegations.

Independents and Others come in at 28% down 2 points - that figure also includes support for Renua Ireland on 2%.
