Fine Gael has returned to being the most popular party in the country.

The latest opinion poll carried out by The Sunday Times shows the party gained 7 points to move to 29 percent, with Fianna Fail just one behind – unchanged on 28.

Sinn Féin dropped five to 18; Labour and the Independent Alliance are both down one to 5.

The Behaviour and Attitude Poll was carried out between March 30th and April 11th – when the water charges debate, Garda scandals and Bus Éireann strike were dominating.
