Irish consumer sentiment improved in March, recovering about half of the large drop recorded in February when the index fell to a 51 month low. The uptick in confidence in March doesn’t signal any dramatic improvement in either the current circumstances or future prospects of the average consumer. However, it does suggest that if Irish consumers are anxious the mood has not become apocalyptic as the Brexit deadline comes closer.
