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 .

Found on Flickr. I wouldn't recognise plane types myself...
Hope it's right but others on here would know...

The plane is an A319.

Why? Well, just because it is. Same way if you saw a mini you'd now it wasn't a Lamboghini.

Now which A319 is a slightly more interesting question; to me it looks like the 'new' Tatarstan Airlines livery that was applied weeks before they had their operating license removed. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tatarstan_Airlines

Their A319 fleet was leased from DUB, as are a decent proportion of the world's leased aircraft - and in this case by AWAS http://www.awas.com/

As the original photo was taken on April 24th, 2014, we can now narrow the airframe down to VP-BDZ which is this beauty here. If Chris can name the pilot, I'll buy him a pint! :lol:

As we're not going to name and shame the pilot, I'll remind at least two forum members here that they have found the cache at the Castle above!!!!!

Is it Carey's Castle near Clonmel? - Off the top of my head I think it is in Co Waterford though...

Correct...so close to clonmel, I presumed it was in Tipp but I did stop on way back from Ballymacarbry so it was definitely Waterford direction.
Nice walk in the woods which you have found before...

I think Brendan must be trying to come up with a very challenging castle over the past two months so if anyone else wants to throw in an easier one at this stage, feel free!
