Regional Pulse

April 2021

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

The steps being taken to restart the economy and society and the expectation of a wider re-opening in the months ahead helped brighten the mood – firms in all regions were more upbeat about business activity and jobs this month, while the share of households holding out on spending because they are not sure what way economic policy is going to go was lower in all regions.
