Regional Pulse

April 2022

The Bank of Ireland Regional Pulses bring together the views of households and firms around the country. The indices are calculated on a 3 month moving average basis and show that sentiment was up in Dublin and Munster but down in the Rest of Leinster and Connacht/Ulster in the February to April period compared with the January to March period.

The fraught geopolitical situation and inflationary environment saw households in all regions downgrade their assessment of current economic conditions this month though, while firms in all regions were more circumspect about the near-term outlook for business activity.
