Manchester University Press

MacClancy, who worked in the West of Ireland, found that the majority of incomers there were patently alternative types fleeing the urban cultures of their upbringing. But there are important distinctions within that general group: the hippies who came over in the early 1970s; the much more politicized crusties who arrived a decade later; the latest wave, which started in 1990s, of less radicalized urbanite escapees who strive to combine the value of living rurally with the benefits of information technology.

Keywords:   hippies; rural incomers; rural change; Clare, Ireland
