The dramatic rise of Sinn Féin during this election campaign is reflected in the findings of the exit poll – not only is it the most popular party in Dublin but the findings also show it commands a lead among every age group under 65.

While its popularity compared to Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil is more pronounced among younger age groups, the findings shows that it is attracting marginally more support that its main rivals for those aged between 35 and 65.

It is only with the over 65s that it’s support falls precipitously, to less than half of that of Fine Gael and Fianna Fáíl.
