The Bank of Ireland Consumer Pulse shows a boost in consumer confidence for November.
The Bank of Ireland Economic Pulse combines consumer and business sentiment, which came in at 80.6 this month, up 3.6 on October.
Bank of Ireland Group Chief Economist, Loretta O'Sullivan says people are less worried about Brexit:
"The overall Pulse rose this month, we saw a bounce in consumer sentiment, and also an improvement in business sentiment. Partly it relates to the fact that the commentary around a no-deal Brexit has abated, it hasn't gone away but it has abated.
"We're also seeing firms and households starting to turn their attention to the festive season."
