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 .

Another Traveler Checking In

Post by Ericles » Mon Sep 26, 2011 9:46 pm

Hello and greetings!
I'm Ericles caching out of Central New Jersey over in the Colonies. :hi
I've had the unbelievable fortune to find myself in Waterford for the next 4 weeks and wanted to pop in and introduce myself. I've been here a week already ran into team Mahon2011 in Ardmore and exchanged a few emails with some of the other local cachers - Barraseaclaid, Serapis and my hero Donnacha who helped me get online here when my registration when wonky. I'm stuck at work during the week but weekends are all mine and I don't mind a nice drive so I'm going to see as much of the country as I can in that time. Who knows, maybe I'll see some of you out there. :-D

I'm definitely planning a trip to the Cork area. Also, no tour of Southern Ireland would be complete without a trip to Blarney. I've heard a lot about the Webbed Foot Froggy and Silent Servant caches... what else should should I put on my "must do" list? This is your chance to promote your own caches MunsterFan! :)

Modesty prevents me from mentioning any of my own or preaching about them but I can guarantee an enjoyable time here in the Rebel county. Webfoot has evaded me thus far but silent servant is worth the legwork.

It is just a pity you weren't in Cork last weekend as then you could have made it over to Crosshaven and seen Fort Camden which is now closed until next year, you might even have been able to collect a few caches in the area while there! Let me know when you are heading to Cork and I can arrange a tour guide... :mrgreen:

Tour guide? I might have to take you up on that offer. :)
This weekend looks like heavy rain. I can't let weather slow me down too much (This is the Sunny Southeast isn't it?) but I'll probably stay closer to a dry change of clothes. Maybe the following - Oct 8/9?

No can do on the 8th important birthday that day. I would be shot if I headed off for a spot of GC'ing
