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 .

Glasgow

I'm going to Glasgow on November 29th for a day trip with spickers and my mum. We will be departing and arriving same day. Can anyone recommend any great caches in Glasgow that they have been to?

That would actually be a great idea!

Re: Towns /Cities outside Dublin for great weekend of geocac

Nenagh :D. Just kidding, there's nothing here. To be honest I'd recommend Waterford. It's around a 2 hour train from Dublin (and 2 hours to drive too). It has a wide variety of caches with many things to do. There's a great puzzle that I didn't get to try. Waterford, while not on the coast has a bea...

Re: Ask The Reviewer

Hi. It would be great if the reviewers could give me their opinion on having a foreign exchange cache in Ireland? It's where a person has to go to one place to get the co-ordinates for the other place. They can get help from other people, etc. An example is the Amsterdam-Atlanta.

Re: Go to GC43 from Dublin

Well, to give you a perspective on how expensive it is, I did a trip from Bray Daly (the DART station in Bray) to Dublin Hueston by Taxi, and by DART. By taxi it cost €40+ to get from there (although traffic was up due to the football final) By DART for me and my aunt (1 child, 1 adult) I thin...
