Regional Pulse

July 2020

The Bank of Ireland Regional Pulses bring together the views of households and firms around the country. The results for July 2020 (3 month moving average basis) show that sentiment was up on the month across the board.

With the process of re-opening the country into its third phase, firms in all regions reported an improvement in trading conditions. The potential postponement of phase four tempered expectations a little though, while the fragility of the economy was on the minds of households nationwide as the incidence of COVID-19 cases ticked up and the new government got off to a bumpy start.
