Regional Pulse

January 2019

The Bank of Ireland Regional Pulses bring together the views of households and firms in the different parts of the country. The 3 month moving averages show that sentiment was down in Dublin, the Rest of Leinster and Connacht/Ulster in January 2019 but up a little in Munster.

Amid increasing fears of a no deal Brexit, households in each of the four regions downgraded their assessment of the economic outlook this month. The business mood was more mixed while on the housing front, house price expectations rose in all areas apart from the Rest of Leinster.

”The January results show that 76% in the Rest of Leinster, 74% in Munster, 71% in Dublin and 70% in Connacht/Ulster think it is cheaper to buy than rent in their area.”
