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 .

Photo Game: Name that Castle cache!

Post by Ericles » Thu Oct 20, 2011 11:44 am

As I look back through a few weeks worth of travels I find that I've taken lots of pictures of castles, abbeys and churches. I'll admit that they all started to look alike and now, if I didn't have time-stamps on the digital photos, I wouldn't know which one I was looking at! So I propose a new game - Upload a photo of a castle (or other significant ruin) and see who can identify it (or the nearest cache) first. If you successfully ID the castle you get to post the next picture! 8) Stick to locations with geocaches to make it (a bit) easier. I'll start it off with an easy one. Name this castle and/or the nearest cache!

I shouldn't think hints are needed with this one.

Good spot - didn't recognise it and I was there yesterday :oops:

FYI It's actually called King John’s Castle

Yeah that was what gave it to me, well the clue Barry gave.

Hmmm now for something completely different, (cue Monty Python music)....

Will have to dig up a more obscure one so give me a moment...
