Priest’s move too convenient

Since it is clear that the Catholic Church was suspicious enough of Father Chesney's work with the IRA to send him out of the UK, I wonder why it placed him in an area like Donegal where his compatriots in Derry would have easy access to him for further projects.

Would it not have been more prudent to have sent him to South America where they sent Bishop Casey for a much lesser, although sinful, offence where contact would have been more difficult?
