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 .

three points and distances

Hi, I would hear if anyone knows a clever program which could help me.
I have three sets of coordinates and I need to draw three circles with varying radius and then see where they intersect.

Re: New recruit trying to log every cache in Ireland in one

I doubt it is a team splitting up since he just found most of my caches around Kilkenny, including the series along the Nore which is from the autumn

Re: Challenges

Need 92 more finds to get to 500 this year, but going home over Christmas with a new power trail running through my home town that shouldn't be a problem.
And then I would like to finish the two pub crawls in Dublin and maybe clear Kilkenny County again, otherwise no real goals.
