Irish consumer sentiment slipped somewhat in February reflecting a pull-back in spending plans and slightly more cautious views on Irish economic prospects in the coming twelve months. The ‘big chill’ of the financial crisis may be well behind us but the economic ‘thaw’ has been slow and uneven.  The survey details continue to point towards a gradual return to more normal conditions, but the pull-back in consumer sentiment in February suggests this may yet take some time.
