Regional Pulse

August 2021

The Bank of Ireland Regional Pulses bring together the views of households and firms around the country. The results for August 2021 (3 month moving average basis) show that sentiment rose in Dublin and the Rest of Leinster but eased back in Munster and Connacht/Ulster.

Reflecting some catch up on the part of households, the consumer mood brightened this month country-wide.

Some slippage was evident in the regional business data though as firms paused for breath. Various bottlenecks have also become apparent and are impacting a range of sectors.
