Regional Pulse

May 2021

The Bank of Ireland Regional Pulses bring together the views of households and firms around the country. The results for May 2021 (3 month moving average basis) show that sentiment was up on the month across the board.

With the easing of public health restrictions continuing, households in all regions took a more positive view of the current economic situation this month. Likewise, firms in all regions were more positive about the here and now, and with more to come on the re-opening front, upped their expectations for business activity over the next three months.
