THE LATEST OPINION poll gives an indication of how well Sinn Féin’s candidates in the European elections are doing following their party leader’s arrest.

The Sunday Business Post is due to publish the results in full tomorrow, but the latest information shows that Sinn Féin remains in contention to win a European Parliament seat in three constituencies, RTÉ says.

Meanwhile, Brian Crowley is doing “very strong” in the South, says Pat Leahy of the SBP, while Brian Hayes is “strong” in Dublin.

Phil Prendergast is described by Leahy as “a bit of a surprise”, with support for her up four per cent. She called for party leader Eamon Gilmore to resign earlier this week.
