March 13th 2017

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: Premium Membership Hike

Since Jan 2012. I work in a Accounts Dept in a Menswear shop. here is the Revenue Commissioner website. It doesn't really make any difference on your previous point.

$30 = €23.34 + 21% VAT = €28.24

This means we have been "overcharged" by €1.76 per year. Not really worth getting that worked up about to be honest!
The vat rate is 23%

$30 = €23.34 +23% VAT = €28.71

Re: Suggestions for NI winter walk, venue and date.

If you are going to choose Kilbronney, this is the route that I was thinking of on the other forum page. Belfast Hills are equally as good but I don't know of any good routes.

Re: 2013 New Years Resolution

How far in total? Something like 5miles/8km would be a good walk but not too far that it puts people off either. Circular is best for parking. Is there somewhere nearby where everyone can gather for food and drink afterwards/ Yes, there is the The Kilbroney Bar and Restaurent, Rostrevor. The routes...

Re: 2013 New Years Resolution

Going on Dino's sugguestion, why not go to Kilbroney Park, drive up to the high Car Park and climb up to Cloghmore and continue on to Slieve Martin and then down the track back to the same car park. You would still appropriate gear for the walk.
