The latest lift to Sinn Fein’s popularity comes following the Government’s budget for 2022 and changes to restrictions implemented due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sinn Fein finance spokesperson Pearse Doherty had described the Government as ‘out of touch, out of ideas and out of times’ following the announcement of the €4.7 billion Budget 2022.

Speaking in the Dail, Mr Doherty criticised Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe and Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform Michael McGrath for failing to do more to tackle surging rents and hospital waiting lists.
