Regional Pulse

June 2018

The Bank of Ireland Regional Pulses combine the views of households and firms around the country. The 3 month moving averages show that sentiment was up on the month in Munster, flat in the Rest of Leinster but down in Dublin and Connacht/Ulster in June 2018.

While households in some parts of the country (especially Munster) were a bit more positive this month and others were a bit more subdued, the overall consumer mood was little changed and remains upbeat. In contrast, firms in all regions sounded a note of caution about the near-term outlook for business activity amid increased external tensions.
