TWO FRESHLY RELEASED opinion polls have found that Sinn Féin is the most popular political party in the country.

The party secured top spot in the Business Post/Red C poll for the first time since Red C began its tracking for the newspaper in 2003.

Meanwhile, in the Sunday Times/Behaviour & Attitudes poll its lead over Fine Gael has grown to 10%.

That poll found that Sinn Féin has increased in popularity by three percentage points to 33%, while Fine Gael dropped two to 23%.

Mary Lou McDonald remains the most popular party leader in Ireland, with a 48% satisfaction rating.

The next election isn’t due to take place until February 2025 but, with three parties making up the current coalition, the chances of a vote being called before then are high.
