Regional Pulse

November 2019

The Bank of Ireland Regional Pulses bring together the views of households and firms around the country. The results for November 2019 (3 month moving average basis) show that sentiment was up in Dublin and Munster but down in the Rest of Leinster and Connacht/Ulster.

Helped by some improvement in the Brexit mood music, households were less gloomy about the economic outlook this month and with the festive season approaching, one in six is planning on spending more on Christmas presents this year compared with last year. The weak pound is likely to lead to some cross border shopping though, impacting retailers in Connacht/Ulster in particular.
