Irish consumer sentiment edged higher in May as spending plans improved in spite of increased uncertainty about the general economic outlook and prospects for household finances. The KBC Bank Ireland/ESRI consumer sentiment index increased to 106.7 in May from 104 in April, reversing about two thirds of the drop seen between March and April.
