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 .

Hmm... well I did ask for it! - not much of a castle left - I hope I haven't previously found this cache as it doesn't look at all familiar...

Nearly that long I've forgotten myself....
Lets see....

:roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:


OK, this is topical for me - my sister was forty years young recently and was named after this song that was in the charts that July. (UK).

The singer/composer was born in Waterford..

The moment you get this you'll understand....

Interesting...maybe some discussion amongst those down at the campsite this weekend might help...

We are not around for the camping this year but hopefully the collective Brains will solve it under that gazebo!

OK another musical hint...

Everybody's building ships and boats
Some are building monuments
Others jotting down notes
Everybody's in despair
Every girl and boy
But when XXXXX the Eskimo gets here
Everybody's gonna jump for joy

Have you killed this one Brendan? Time to name and put everyone out of their misery. Maybe post another?

Ok
The clues were pointing to Quin, Co Clare (obviously :roll: )
The cache is Mooghaun Hillfort near Quin.

I suppose I'll put up an easy one now.
