FF shaky in key district, says FG poll - National News, Frontpage - Independent.ie
FF's support is now gauged at just 22pc, with FG rated at 40pc and Labour at 26pc.
FG took two seats -- Simon Coveney and Deirdre Clune -- while Labour won back a seat with Ciaran Lynch.
Now, the FG poll indicates that the Labour Party has a chance of making history by taking a second seat in the key Cork constituency, with FF facing the threat of holding just one.
Mr Martin looks set to take the third seat, with his colleague Mr McGrath (8pc) facing a desperate battle to hold his.
He is running almost 4pc behind Labour's Cork County Council member, Cllr Paula Desmond, who was last week added to the party's two-person CSC ticket.
Another problem for FF is that FG is also expected to run a powerful third candidate, Senator Jerry Buttimer (8pc), who narrowly missed out on taking a Dail seat in 2007.
