A new poll claims Leo Varadkar is now the most popular Taoiseach since Bertie Ahern.

The first Irish Times/Ipsos MRBI opinion poll of the year shows his apporval has gone up another seven points to 60%.

The last time an Irish leader was as popular was the height of the boom in 2007.

Satisfaction with the Government has risen by three points to 44%, the highest since Fine Gael came to power seven years ago.

Satisfaction with other party leaders has dropped slightly.

The approval rating of Fianna Fáil's Micheál Martin is at 42%, Sinn Féin's out-going leader Gerry Adams is at 27%, while Labour's Brendan Howlin stands at 18%.

The poll of 1,200 voters aged 18 and over was done in face-to-face interviews on Monday and Tuesday of this week.
