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: Online geo-shopping

I confess I'm a bit of a geocaching 'tart'. Don't stick to any particular store. Probably the majority of my purchases have been from various random e-bay sellers. I have bought several things from Pulse72 though on different occasions. Only one small blip when I ordered a geocoin from their e-bay s...

Excellent, well done Tmsr! The cache is called Sound the Alarm! http://coord.info/GC4CPYQ - a great cache too at a spot we've walked past tens of times without realising it was there.

Re: Photo Game: Name that Castle cache!

Not a problem.

Hard to say too much without giving the game away.

It's not overly far away from a cache which appears in the Ulster Top 20 List and the area surrounding the castle is popular with equestrian activities.

Re: Photo Game: Name that Castle cache!

Oh the shame of it - we even 'did' the virtual when passing there after one of DUcInc's CITOs about two years ago. I did reckon it was in Ulster! Hope Sgtzara 's next offering might allow me to make amends... No shame Tmsr ... even I had to think about it for a while and I know it well. Fair play t...
