After a series of high-profile violent attacks in Dublin City, more than half of voters are not satisfied with the work of the Minister for Justice, according to a new opinion poll.
The survey, carried out by Ireland Thinks for the Sunday Independent, revealed that 51% of voters said they were not satisfied.
The survey also revealed that support for Sinn Féin is at its highest level since last year.
The party has risen to 34% in popularity and is Ireland's most popular party in the country.
Solidarity-People Before Profit had dropped 1% in popularity, to a total of 3%.
Labour rose two points, to 4% while Aontu is on 2% popularity, down 1%.
Voters were asked if they would exclude any party from their voting preference in the upcoming election, and 42% responded to Sinn Féin, which was a four-point drop.
The poll was carried out on August 4th-5th by 1,272 adults – with a margin of error of 2.8%.
