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 .

Geocoin for Bally Cache Rally

We just decided to take this day out for our first event. We picked up a coin last month and are keen to send it on soon. Ive placed it at the event. Do we need to give the coin to someone running the event before the date, or just take it with us on the day? Sorry, but this is our 1st event and a b...

Welcome.
we live in Belfast, but Clueless female is from Omagh, so that qualifies as NW.

Thanks dino, thats helpful. I think once a week will be plenty for us, we dont intend to do every single cache in Ireland anyway, but its good to have the whole heap there to look at when we head off.

How many days of the week is best to run all these queries? Is it an idea to run 1 per day every week? Also will doing this tell me all the newly plublished caches every week? The whole PQ thing still baffles me. 1 more question. When I load the zip files onto GSAK, then run the PQ of MY FINDS, will...

All we had was our Garmin Sat-Nav. I imputted the co-ords and off we went. We initially went to find Belvoir Treasure Box GCV6NN, b...

Nearly 1 month now

Hi all. We (Jonny&Claire) have been geocaching for nearly a month now, and we've come to know some of your names from logs and owners. It all started off for us when our friends took us to look for our first cache with them. We didnt find it and gave up to try another day. But went on from there to ...

Hi. We have done a few of the heart series, and hopefully will get the rest done. We live in Belfast but have family in Tyrone, so we will get the rest done when were next down there. We didnt take pictures at all of them though, but may be worth going back to get them if theres goodies on the go.
