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: WAY out West! - Destination Galway

@donnacha And as I have said, I do this with full permission with my parents, and my aunt and I have actually met yer_man before. And of course I wouldn't meet geocachers on my own without the presence of a parent/guardian, even those that I know. I was going to go with my mum who is way over 30 (bu...

Re: WAY out West! - Destination Galway

Well I don't live too far from Galway (about 1 hour) and there's like 5 caches here, so maybe you could come here on Thursday or something. I don't know yet. I'll get back to you, but it's a possibility :)

EDIT: I won't be able to do Thursday, will check out Wednesday next for you now

Re: A Chatty Cache - Xmas event????

This seems like a great idea! Saturday would be better for me and who knows I might be able to stay on for a bit.

Re: 2014 Ireland Mega

I'd fully agree with that. However I can't think of anywhere that would have enough capacity for 500+ people in Bray, either outdoors or indoors that spring to mind.

Re: 2014 Ireland Mega

Well considering 3 things 1. People would be attracted to a country's first mega rather than the 5th American or the 3rd Swiss or whatever. 2. People will be visiting Ireland anyway. It is a top holiday and many people may have booked their holiday here before a mega was even published. 3. Ryanair :-)

Re: 2014 Ireland Mega

It might seem strange to bump this up, but what was the point of making another thread. I personally believe Ireland are fully capable of hosting a mega event. With a not so bad transport system, and routes to both American, European and Middle Eastern Routes from Dublin, Ireland are fully capable. ...
