Regional Pulse

December 2021

The Bank of Ireland Regional Pulses bring together the views of households and firms around the country. The results for December 2021 (3 month moving average basis) show that sentiment was down across the board.

Fresh public health measures to curb the spread of COVID-19, along with uncertainty about the path of the virus and whether further mitigating actions will need to be taken, contributed to the unease evident in the regional survey results this month – households were worried about the economy in general, with firms gloomier about business activity in particular.
