On 14th April 2015 the Central Bank of Ireland (Central Bank) published the Irish Responses to the April 2015 Bank Lending Survey, concluding that whilst generally credit standards remained unchanged, credit standards have tightened on loans for house purchases, with housing market prospects and reduced risk tolerance both contributing to this tightening in standards, and credit standards on consumer credit lending has eased marginally. Loan demand was reported to have increased across all forms of enterprise, with demand expected to increase again during the second quarter of 2015.
