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 .

Thanks Doug - you're to blame for pointing out the possibility of loops - we were happy to finish it in the first place!

Re: Milestone Congratulation Thread

Afraid I wouldn't be getting too bothered about 100 milestones once we passed the first ton, but getting 3000 up is cool.
Well done to Fjon who passed 3k this week on a challenging puzzle!

Re: Photo Game: Name that Castle cache!

Correct...so close to clonmel, I presumed it was in Tipp but I did stop on way back from Ballymacarbry so it was definitely Waterford direction.
Nice walk in the woods which you have found before...

Re: Photo Game: Name that Castle cache!

As we're not going to name and shame the pilot, I'll remind at least two forum members here that they have found the cache at the Castle above!!!!!

Re: Photo Game: Name that Castle cache!

Ok, this one's been waiting to land for too long... Dunsoghly Castle, St.Margarets, Co.Dublin as the Airbus 319 comes into runway 10? Think there's a Winsockers multicache nearby... GC13KM1 St. Brigid's Well that's not been found for a while. Surprised that Gold Circle or The_Chris haven't been on t...

Only one I've been to that I can recall is Bective Abbey which took me two visits to find the cache but not sure if that's it..

Re: Photo Game: Name that Castle cache!

Think it could be Rathkenny Castle which is in Meath near Navan I think?
Not sure what cache is nearby as I've not done that many around there ...

Re: Potential event?

Probably not permissible officially, but nothing to stop a gang of us choosing to support the walk anyway....
There could be a similar precedent with the night event in the Phoenix Park last year?
