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 .

Hello Everyone,

I have only discovered this site recently and I would like to introduce myself. I have been caching for a short while and really enjoy it. I know some of the usernames on the site, having already visited some of their caches.

So Hello everyone. :D :D :D

Hello and welcome

Not long here myself, but already I have found that it helps if you are slightly mad in the head when you come in here :roll:

hope you enjoy the banter as much as I do, good luck :wink:

Welcome to the forums :mrgreen:
Some gal would giggle and I'd get red
And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head,
I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named "Sue."

Thank you to all who have welcomed me to the forum. Quite a few well known cachers so far. I hope to be able to make some useful contributions in the future.

Thanks,

Hello and welcome to the forum. Don't believe that bit about being slightly mad helping. That's a newbie point of view. Take it from me - absolutely barking mad is the order of the day here :D
