Regional Pulse

July 2021

The Bank of Ireland Regional Pulses bring together the views of households and firms around the country. The results for July 2021 (3 month moving average basis) show that sentiment was down a little in Dublin, up in the Rest of Leinster and Munster and flat in Connacht/Ulster.

While households in all regions were  warier about the outlook for the economy this month, they were generally more upbeat about the here and now. Firms’ assessment of the situation was similar, with businesses in each of the four regions sounding a more positive note about current trading conditions in July.
