Regional Pulse

June 2019

The Bank of Ireland Regional Pulses combine the views of households and firms in the different parts of the country. The results for June 2019 (3 month moving average basis) show that sentiment was down on the month in Dublin and Connacht/Ulster, more or less flat in the Rest of Leinster and up in Munster.

Households were – in the main – more upbeat about the current economic situation and their own finances this month but gloomier about the economy’s prospects. And amid tensions on the global stage and Brexit uncertainty, firms in all regions scaled back their near-term expectations for business activity.
