Regional Pulse

December 2019

The Bank of Ireland Regional Pulses bring together the views of households and firms around the country. The results for December 2019 (3 month moving average basis) show that sentiment was up on the month in Dublin, the Rest of Leinster and Munster, and to a lesser extent in Connacht/Ulster.

2019 has been a year of Brexit-related drama and political events in the UK were to the fore again this month, with a general election campaign underway across the Irish Sea and in the North as the December survey was being carried out. Uncertainty has taken a toll on consumer and business confidence countrywide, with the Regional Pulses all ending the year below where they started it.

”Like the Economic Pulse, the four Regional Pulses closed out 2019 lower than where they began it.”
