Sinn Fein is the most popular party in the country, according to the latest opinion poll.

Mary Lou McDonald's party has surged into first place with just days to go until voting.

The Irish Times/Ipsos MRBI poll has the party up four to 25%.

Fianna Fail is in second on 23%, down two, while Fine Gael is in third on 20%, down three.

Eleswhere Labour is down one to 4% and the Green Party is unchanged at 8%.

1,200 adults were surveyed face-to-face at 120 locations on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of last week.

The poll also has Mary Lou McDonald as the country's most popular party leader, with her satisfaction rating up seven to 41%.

Micheál Martin and Leo Varadkar are both on 30% after seeing their popularity slip by three points and five points respectively.

However the poll also shows Fianna Fáil as the party most people want to see in government, and Sinn Féin as the party most people don't want to see in government.

It comes ahead of tomorrow night's leaders' debate on RTÉ, which will now include Sinn Fein.
