Collinson did fieldwork in Donegal, northwest Ireland, on relations between indigenes and incomers. He found that incomers, acting in groups in liaison with some locals, tended to be more prepared to seek EU rural-stimulation grants and so acted as motors of rural change. These groups had a different vision of the environment to that held by community development groups, staffed wholly by denizens, and by local councils. He is thus able to argue that the historical neglect of environmental concerns in the overall development agenda in Ireland is socially grounded at local levels, with all the consequences that entails.
