Regional Pulse

October 2018

The Bank of Ireland Regional Pulses combine the views of households and firms around the country. The results for October 2018 (3 month moving average basis) show that sentiment was down on the month in three of the four regions.

With nerves on edge in the absence of a Brexit deal, households took a more downbeat view of the economy this month, particularly those in Connacht/Ulster. The business mood in this part of the country was similarly muted which isn’t surprising given that a solution to the border backstop issue hasn’t yet been found.
