As the Dáil takes its Easter break, two new opinion polls show conflicting outcomes for Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil.

A Sunday Times Behaviour and Attitudes Poll suggests Fianna Fáil has overtaken Fine Gael for the first time since July 2017.

It suggests Fianna Fáil is up four points to 29%, while Fine Gael drops three points to 28%.

Sinn Féin increased by two points to 21% and the Independent Alliance is up two to 4%.

Labour is on 4% (down one point), the Greens are on 1% (down two points) and the Social Democrats are on 1% (up one point).

There was no change for Solidarity-People Before Profit which is on 1% and Independents and Others are on 10% (down two points).

The poll was carried out from 4-16 April in a series of face-to-face interviews with 933 Irish voters. 

However, it is important to point out that the margin of error is 3.3%.

In contrast, a Red C Poll carried out by the Sunday Business Post suggests the level of support for Fine Gael is up two points to 33% with Fianna Fáil support dropping two points to 23%.

The poll suggests Sinn Féin is up by one point to 14%.

The Independent Alliance is at 2% (down one point) , while the Labour Party remains on 5% for the third Red C poll in a row.

The Green Party remains on 3% and the Social Democrats were down one point to 2%.

The Poll suggests Solidarity-People Before Profit support level nationally is down by one point to 1%.

While the new Aontú party registers at 1% in this poll for the first time.

The poll of 1,000 adults was carried out between 11-17 April and has a 3% margin of error.
