The KBC Bank consumer sentiment index in Ireland declined to a seven-month low of 83.1 in November of 2021 from 86.8 in the prior month, with the outlook for the general economy and jobs deteriorating, amid worries over higher energy bills, a surge in COVID-19 infections, and problems in Ireland's housing market.
KBC Ireland chief economist Austin Hughes said the November reading does not point to a markedly poorer outlook but suggests that consumers fear improvements in their household finances might fall short of expectations. source: KBC Bank Ireland/ESRI
