When I established the forums in 2005 it was to offer a more richer web experience and greater functionality than the platform where we started this social adventure in 2003, Yahoo Groups. The forums were once a busy hive of activity and provided locals and visitors with a wealth of information just like the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook today.

It was a time where we didn't have the many social media platforms we have today, and it was a different time in terms of mobility and technology. There was no instant access to information, no Google Maps and a very limited base map on your GPSr. Mobile connectivity for me was a 9600bps Infrared connection from a Nokia to a laptop and in later times to a PDA using WAP.

As we moved into the social media era so did our forums users. Geocaching Ireland moved there too, and we have a thriving community on the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook. As a result, forum activity isn't what it used to be and I have taken the decision to disable new registrations to the forums and to make the forums read only so any information there can still be accessed.

The discussion hasn't ended, it has just moved. Join us on the Facebook Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group .

Re: Dogs on the Mountain

Eh, I notice that this topic is three years old, BUT...

I do know that it is a farmer's right to shoot any dog that endangers his sheep! You will find a notice to this effect on the gates of many farm fields.

Re: Online geo-shopping

Oh Abbey, Sorry to hear of your Geo shopping troubles... BUT I am a BIG fan of Pulse72. When I didn't know any better, I did my very 1st bit of Geo shopping in USA c/o Ebay- the guy said I was his 1st Irish customer! Then I discovered Pulse72 & gave him loads of orders- I was a bit pissed off that I...

Re: WAY out West! - Destination Galway

An open reply to put a lid on this matter..... I thought at all times that I was corresponding with an adult, who was a C.O.- there was no information on disoma's profile in relation to age or sex. When I discovered that he was TWELVE, I sent him a very short reply to cease communication. Then I Ema...

Newbie...or not so newbie...

Heya guys & gals I've finally made it!... to the elusive 100 caches! I read on our parent site, Geocaching.com that the magic number of 100 found caches was the required target to achieve, before you could start hiding your own caches. So, I'm now @ 108! Yippie! Well, I suppose you want a bit (or a ...
