Poll shows further growth in Sinn Féin support

An opinion poll today shows Sinn Fein has more than twice the level of voter support as Labour.

The survey conducted by Ipsos/MRBI on behalf of the Irish Times asked 1,000 people which party they would vote for if there was a General Election tomorrow.

A total of 10% opted for Labour, a three-point slip, while 24% said Sinn Féin - a three-point gain for Gerry Adams' party.

There was also good news for Fianna Fáil which increased support by three points to 17%.

Fine Gael was down one point to 32%, and Independents and others were down two points to 15%.
