Regional Pulse

September 2019

The Bank of Ireland Regional Pulses bring together the views of households and firms in the various parts of the country. The 3 month moving averages show that sentiment was down on the month in all regions in September 2019.

Brexit woes were to the fore once again, with households worried about the economy and almost nine in ten businesses expecting their region to be negatively impacted over the coming year. The September results also point to infrastructure concerns among firms – housing gets a broad-based thumbs down and telecommunications outside of Dublin scores relatively poorly, as does transport in Munster and Connacht/Ulster.

”Transport and telecommunications infrastructure are the priority areas for investment in Connacht/Ulster, while housing is number one everywhere else.”
