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: Just on quickly to remove an avatar

Actually no Donny All I want is a quiet life. You informed me I annoyed you and so I did what I could to rectify that situation. I also was informed by you that I annoyed someone else so I posted this here to let them know that I am happy for them to come to me privately and speak to me about whatev...

Just on quickly to remove an avatar

Hi All Just on to remove an avatar that I have been told off for using as it apparently is the same as one someone else has. I would beg to differ as mine goes through 8 emotions compared to this persons avatar having only 2. But Im not one to want to be an annoyance to anyone. So if anyone else has...

Re: this weekend

To my disgrace I havent been caching in the maiden city yet. I have been caching in Donegal but ran out of light as there was too much time between caches wasted with poor navigation (on my part) before the garmin was employed to take us places.

Re: Scotland-Stranraer area

We have parents who own a farm near Stranraer. The farm is visited once a month at the very least by the in-laws, and one of us can quite easily make a trip at a weeks notice if any of the caches needed maintenance. We are both self employed, so can rearrange time off etc. We were only thinking abou...

Scotland-Stranraer area

We have quite a few coins and TBs to take with us too. Any suggestions for good caches worthwhile visiting. Were not mountain climberes o...

Re: GPS?

Do you have a Blackberry or windows mobile with built in gps or you can buy a bluetooth gps unit. We have programs for paperless caching on our phones and theyre pretty easy to use, also accurate and reliable for us.

Re: Travel Bug Problem

Hi Ya No Problem. I will place it in the next tuperware container that I find. This means I will have to grab it from the dutch couple and stick it in there and then the confusion will begin again. But if thats what I have to do, then thats what I have to do. This kind of thing makes me hesitant to ...

Re: Travel Bug Problem

Hi Ya Sorry I probably wrote that in a really confusing way. The Dutch Couple collected theirs in Holland. So they were really confused as to why I contacted them asking if they were in Northern Ireland and intended to pick up that particular bug here. I have heard of people taking flights across th...

Re: Ask The Reviewer

Just to point out - there are 4 events taking place over the two days. If you don't camp but still show up you can still get three smilies for the other ones. It should be a good weekend. I didnt quite understand that all the events were interlocked and you could still go and still claim the other ...

Then this dutch couple transferred this into their possession and also said they lifted it from Scrabo quarry. I contacted the dutch couple to explain that I had the travel bug and wondering whet...
