Fianna Fáil enjoys surge in support in latest public opinion poll

Fine Gael remains the most popular party in the country.

Fianna Fáil has reclaimed significant ground among Irish citizens.

Micheál Martin's party has seen its support rise to the highest level since July of 2016, according to the latest Sunday Business Post / Red C opinion poll, which puts Fianna Fáil up by three points to an overall of 29%.

Fine Gael, meanwhile, remains the best-supported party in Ireland on 32%.

The poll of 1,000 adults was conducted over telephone between 15 - 22 February when Fianna Fáil struck a chord with the public for its opposition against the sale of distressed mortgages to unregulated vulture funds.
