A bit of.... variation there.

Worth noting: That B&A puts (no, I don't believe the Greens are on 4%, why do you ask?) FG at a lower level than what they achieved in 2002.

21% and 6% are what the two government parties deserve.

As for the 4%, please spare us that smug bicycling Ranelagh git and his crew of fingerwaggers.

Oh, I don't disagree with any of that. Although I suspect that's too low in reality (more like 25 and 9%). Also I suspect the Green total is just an artifact of the poll (or people just saying whatever party comes into their head that they don't automatically disapprove of).

The most interesting thing is that SF seem incapable of getting much beyond 20%.

Tell me about it.

In RL, I'm involved with one of the groups in Irish society to whom ritual lip-service is always given during discussion of emigration - the small rural GAA club.

Out of a panel of about 25-30, five have left since last September and I'd only be optimistic about one of those five returning in the foreseeable future. Another two had gone the year before. We're struggling to field teams every week - not always successfully - and every other club I'm dealing with is in the same situation. I take the trumpeted announcements of falling unemployment with bucketloads of salt.

Thanks for the link to the B&A data.

Labour voters approve of Enda Kenny more than of Eamon Gilmore

15% of Farmers went to a performance of ballet or opera in the past year
Women were more likely than men to go to any/all cultural activities over the course of the past year.
C2DE voters were more likely than ABC1 voters to go a book reading over the past year.

The plurality of theatre goers are FF voters.
Green voters don't seem to like going to the circus  - but FF and SF voters are much more enthused by it.
SF voters are the most likely to go to public book readings; but the least likely to read a book yourself for pleasure.

Funny 'cause it's true:
Very few people seriously allow facts to affect their opinions.

That one is entirely credible.

FG voters give Gilmore his highest approval rating. They know a good doormat when they see one.

Turn enough corners and you find you've ended up back where you started without having accomplished anything for all your travels.
