The Paddy Power/Red C survey put Fine Gael’s support at 40 per cent, up by one point from last weekend, strengthening the possibility of a single-party government.

Meanwhile, support for Labour hit just 18 per cent – also gaining one point since last Saturday.

Support for Fianna Fáil was 15 per cent (-1), while Sinn Féin received ten per cent of the votes (-1) and the Greens 3 per cent (+1).

Independents had 14 per cent support (unchanged).
