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

Post by donnacha » Thu Jul 23, 2009 7:33 am

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.

The original thread must have reached capacity and Donnacha started a new one 8)
Some gal would giggle and I'd get red
And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head,
I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named "Sue."

Not positive you we were correct on the last one! Would that be Trim Castle.

It is the Bronte cache Wuthering Heights (the mural is just beside the visitors centre which you pass on the way to the cache site).

Not even the right county with that guess, but since you mention it I can see the resemblance.

Try this one for size! I have some different shots of it if this is too obtuse.
