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 .

Flashmob in Cork City

Post by golaman » Fri Nov 20, 2009 4:31 pm

This flashmob took place last Saturday in Patrick Street Cork before the 'March for the Arts'.
About 800 people turned up who had responded to an email asking for volunteers for the flashmob and the event was choreographed by Pat Kiernan of Corcadorca. It lasted three and a half minutes and was wonderful!
I love the girl in the front with the fringe in the black coat who puts her heart and soul into the routine and then walks off as it nothing happened!
Wasn't there myself. This was emailed to me and I thought folk might be interested.
