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: Geocaching fatality?

That is bad news, regardless if he was caching or not.
I had a visitor to a cache in Kilkenny a few years who fell and broke her leg.
She had just started a six week holiday from the US.

Re: Photo Game: Name that Castle cache!

Ok
The clues were pointing to Quin, Co Clare (obviously :roll: )
The cache is Mooghaun Hillfort near Quin.

I suppose I'll put up an easy one now.

OK another musical hint...

Everybody's building ships and boats
Some are building monuments
Others jotting down notes
Everybody's in despair
Every girl and boy
But when XXXXX the Eskimo gets here
Everybody's gonna jump for joy
