Irish consumer sentiment edged lower for the second month in a row in November as a result of a slight downgrade of Irish economic prospects. While consumers still view prospects positively, they remain very sensitive to any potential threats to the Irish economic recovery. We think developments such as a rail strike during the survey period and uncertainty over a proposed Apple data centre may have affected thinking as to the strength and durability of the recovery as well as the outcomes it is now delivering.
