OF recent polls, Mr Donohoe said:
“Fianna Fail are putting forward their worst hits of their recent past and what Sinn Fein are offering is the kind of ideas that will do such harm to workers income, to wages and to their jobs.
“They have claimed they are going to put forward new ideas for investment involving 15 different tax hikes – tax hikes that would be bad for those at work, tax hikes that would be bad for those looking to create jobs.”

Fianna Fáil Finance Spokesperson Michael McGrath (above left) and Health Spokesperson Stephen Donnelly begin the last week of the General Election campaign.
Of Sinn Fein’s poll rise, Mr McGrath said:
“In the real world, people change their behaviour, they make investment decisions depending on the change in taxation and enterprise landscape in the country.
“Sinn Fein want to make this a very cold place for business. They want to tax employment through increasing PRSI (Pay Related Social Insurance), they want to tax people over 100,000 euro under the pretence that won’t affect anybody below 100,000 euro.”
