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: Photo Game: Name that Castle cache!

I am not the bouncy castle man, and being a Dane I wouldn't know a Louth-Monaghan accent from another.

Re: Youghal: Good geocaching fun or Overkill? whatya think?

Ok, I just had a look of some of the new caches, and yes that is overkill, and combined with some of the caches I found in the weekend there are definitely caches in the south east now that I wouldn't recommend people to go and find.

Re: Photo Game: Name that Castle cache!

Kilkenny Castle, and the caches would be The Colles Horse Through and Castle View?

Re: New souvenirs?

Agree, it is a fairly poor description, they can't have been using a lot of time on that. You can also visit the popular tourist city of Kilkenny - and you could also visit a lot of other popular tourist places. Meaningless.

Re: Youghal: Good geocaching fun or Overkill? whatya think?

As Ireland is now in some places I don't see anything wrong with people like Peig putting out a lot of caches. I mostly find that they are in interesting places although not always well maintained. However, without Peig the only other active cacher in my area when I arrived would have been Serapis, ...

Re: New souvenirs?

However, as there are more than 100 new souvenirs I guess it is just a matter of time. At least they said that when all the new ones have been published they don't have any plans for new country souvenirs.

Don't remember any horses, but you are definitely right about it being Knockelly Castle

Is it close to one of your caches? Maybe Uppercourt Manor in Freshford
