Support for Government up as Fianna Fáil TD says his party is 'facing demise'

Support for Sinn Féin fell by four points to 17%.

DEPUTY ÉAMON Ó’CUÍV has said that Fianna Fáil is suffering from “an absolute collapse in self-belief”.

The grandson of Éamon De Valera, who founded the party, made the comments about the party to the Sunday Independent.

It comes as a RED C poll in the Sunday Business Post shows support for Fianna Fáil is unchanged at around 18%, while support for the Government has increased.

Fine Gael went up 3 points to 27% and Labour went up 3 points to 10% - this is the highest level of support both parties have had in a year.

Support for Sinn Féin fell by four points to 17%. It comes after the party faced further sex abuse allegations this month.

Independents and Others are on 28% – down 2 points.  That figure also includes support for Renua Ireland on 2%.

The poll was conducted among 1,000 voters earlier in the week.
