Regional Pulse

Regional Pulse

July 2019

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 down across the board in July 2019, with the Dublin and Rest of Leinster Pulses also posting their weakest readings to date.

The potential ramifications of political developments in the UK had consumers as well as businesses on edge this month, with households in all regions downgrading their assessment of the general economic situation and firms in all regions scaling back their expectations for business activity over the next three months.
