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 .

...and from our crew too, have a very pleasant break!

Hi Noelle
I checked out RTE 2 and see there were 4 areas in total involved including Tory.
Were there 4 programmes made or are they all in one?
I see that "on the block" is on again this morning and over the next couple of days.

Yes I saw it. I came on it as I was flicking around. I missed the start and so will look out for it again.

Sorry should have explained better. There are 4 different programmes, the Tory one was on Christmas day. The Buckingham Street one was today, the Dromahane, Co. Cork one is tomorrow rte2 at 11am and Adamstown tuesday 11am rte2, the first one made about 3 years ago in Fatamia Mansions in dub is being reshown on New years day, not sure of time. Hopefully they will all be reshown sometime soon too.

Isn't a bit silly of RTE not to have the program available on the RTE Player?
I'm always being told about programs that I missed, and theres no easy way of catching them again.
Its a pity RTE couldn't put some more of the licence fee into providing a better service instead of paying ludicrous salaries to an 'elite' handful.

Anyone see the 'Summer of 69' show last night on RTE??

About a photographer from National Geographic, who came to IReland 40 years ago, and tooks tonnes of pictures.... He came back 40 years later to meet the people he pictured, and see what has changed... Great Show - And it's on the RTE PLayer :D
