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 .

Name the cache picture post - Archive 1

Not sure if this will work or not, but let's try it out.
Going to post a pic, and you have to guess what cache it's taken from. Whoever guesses gets to post the next pic for someone to guess.
Try to not make it too hard, have something in the pic that would be recognisable rather than a just a generic Irish landscape/ graveyard etc.

I'll start off with two, but anyone who guesses one of them can then upload the next photo.

I have pretty much an identical photo to that at home! Where's the second photo...? It looks vaguely familiar. I'll dig out a photo of a different cache later.

Cool, it's a nice spot.
The second one is "Old Walls" in Louth.

BTW, careful how you post the photos, there are hints in the html ;)

Would that be a "not to be Conned" one by any chance?

Post by johnrm » Thu May 14, 2009 7:42 am

Correct! 'Don't be Conned'
The pic is of Pontoon Bridge from the cache area.
Your turn Sean.
