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: EarthCache Virtual 5K

Hi. Just wondering could someone possibly give us (me and my aunt (strawberrypickers)) a lift from Luas Red Cow at 10AM to GZ if possible? Thanks so much :)

Don't worry I don't go to events with my aunt or my mum! Hope to be doing this for a long time so I might in the future but not now.

Heya

Hello there, my name is Connor and I'm 12 from Nenagh in Co. Tipp!! You might know me (well you would know me) as diosma1, I attended the Bray CITO last week, and found 8 caches there, a new record in a day for me! Well first off, if you're ever in Nenagh, do let me know if you would like to meet me...
