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 .

It was actually 6:30am as I slept in the car parked in a farm gate close to the fort.

Correct... but the web listing for the EC seems to have changed since I went there (never logged it, mostly never do ECs, yawn) so I guess I won't be logging this one anytime soon... Except if I make it to next years camping event by EP

Not sure how it's changed but was summer of 2012 when we were there and it was cold and wet so didn't hang about!
Try this one - picture shows a lot so it should be fairly recognisable (if you know it!)

The thing about the internet is that you cannot hide what you were doing at 09:46:25hrs using a HTC one camera on July 7th 2013... :mrgreen:

Ah well - maybe it wasn't geo tagged - the date won't do!
Time for a little geosleuthing so - you weren't a million miles away from us for part of that weekend if I recall....

File properties obviously aren't helping so I'm going to try to encourage the adventurous - it's located in Connacht...
