Regional Pulse

November 2020

The Bank of Ireland Regional Pulses bring together the views of households and firms around the country. The 3 month moving averages show that sentiment was up across the board in November 2020.

While Level 5 restrictions are biting, the anticipated re-opening of the economy over the festive season lifted the mood among firms and contributed to the rise in business sentiment in all regions this month. Consumer confidence was also up on the month in each region, as positive developments on the COVID-19 vaccine front raised households’ hopes that the economy will recover next year.
