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 .

I initially thought it was Dunmase too, but discounted it for precisely the same reason. Well spotted! =D>

Turret thats left looks a bit like Johnstown, but think grounds are wrong and it has featured before...

I was thinking it looked a little like Kinnity Castle??, but Merv's hint actually threw me off unless ye took a major diversion...couldn't be Kilkenny Castle?? - should recognise it, but having been caught out by Dunamase I'm now doubting myself. Can't think of another in the area that's in such good condition - will have to do some homework!

Yep, right behind it, don't have the GC code to hand, but a quick look at the maps will give it to you

Found it : Ducketts's Grove - Ben & Ryan's Cache - GC3Q8B4 - must have been some pad in it's day.

C'mon MF - there must be plenty of obscure Munster castles that you can inflict on us to get your own back on the Leinster team that raided your stronghold yesterday!

We don't have space in the cabinet for any more large silverware.
