The rate of growth in construction activity quickened slightly in March after slowing for four successive months. New orders also increased at a faster pace and business sentiment picked up, according to the latest survey of the sector by Ulster Bank.
The weak euro contributed to the strongest increase in input prices in eight years, the survey added. While the sector is picking up, the rate of expansion was weaker than 2014.
