There is mixed news for the government parties in two new opinion polls this evening.
One poll shows Fine Gael losing two points and Labour unchanged, while the other shows a two-point drop for Labour with Fine Gael holding steady.
Both polls, in the Sunday Business Post and the Sunday Times, show Fine Gael retaining 11-point leads over their nearest rivals.
While all the changes are within the respective margin of error, they each mark the end in a series of gains for the Government parties.
The Red C poll in the Business Post has Fine Gael down two points to 30%, with Fianna Fáil gaining those two points at 19%, level with Sinn Féin who are unchanged. Labour remain on 9%, the rest share 23%. That poll was taken between last Monday and Wednesday.
The Sunday Times poll by Behaviour & Attitudes was over a longer window - January 4 to 13 - and has Fine Gael unchanged at 31% but Labour down 2%, to 6%.
As Fianna Fáil's Ard Fhéis continues there is some good news for the party's members as they see their support rise 1% to 20%, while Sinn Féin fall 1% to 16%, and the rest share 26%.
