Abstract

Between 1981-1991, 4% of the Burren area was reclaimed under the Programme for Western Development. Although more efficient and intensive agriculture is now possible, there has been a corresponding loss of environmental variety as scrub, semi-natural grassland, limestone pavement and ancient field boundaries have been replaced by uniform grassland fields. The great increase in fertiliser and silage usage may pose a threat to groundwater quality in the area
