Irish consumer sentiment edged lower in October, continuing the pattern of ‘one and a half steps forward, one step back’ that has characterised the monthly sentiment survey readings for the past year or so. The monthly change in the sentiment index in October was the smallest thus far in 2017, which suggests no major change in thinking on the part of Irish consumers in the past month.
