Dublin, Feb 27: Ireland's governing coalition is set to fall far short of the majority needed for a second term following an election, according to an exit poll for the Irish Times newspaper.

Support for Prime Minister Enda Kenny's Fine Gael party slumped to 26.1 per cent, compared to 36.1 in the previous election in 2011, while backing for junior coalition partners Labour plummeted to 7.8 per cent from 19.5 per cent, according to the poll conducted by Ipsos, MRBI.

"If the final result is close to the exit poll predictions, the Fine Gael/Labour coalition will be far short of the numbers required to form a majority government," the Irish Times wrote yesterday.
