    Abstract

    The paper is organised around six sections. The first section explores the relationship between European integration and the regional context by considering how and in what ways it is possible to conceptually and theoretically think about this relationship. Following this preliminary discussion the next section examines the impact of European integration, especially the structural funds, on the Irish case. In particular, this is schematically organised around the notions of a variety of constitutional/political, administrative and economic impacts on Ireland. Section three considers the recent negotiations over the structural funds, examines who the players have been and what the negotiations have entailed. The penultimate sections look at Ireland and the negotiations, particularly with a view to understanding the debate over reform within Ireland and the debate amongst the member states and their representatives at the European level. In conclusion, the paper returns to the issue of whether the notion of multi-level governance is useful to understanding the Irish case and whether European integration has significantly impacted below the national level on the sub-national actors and processes in Ireland.
