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 .

With a heavy heart today I boarded the Holyhead ferry from Dublin for the final time :( The Irish Leg of my expedition this year is complete and now there are just a few weeks left over here before I head home at Christmas to Australia.

My 3-4 months (Jan, Apr, Sept) spent in Ireland this year have been amazing. I found nearly 500 caches, completed a lot of the Challenges (having completed the NW and Top 10 this week... yet to log ;) ) and got the chance to try out some of the toughest caches in the country all while making new Caching friends.

A HUGE Thanks to all those hiders who kept my Geostreak Unbroken through 500 (and counting!) days... to those who were able to make the Celebration Event... to those placing the devious puzzles and multis in Dublin... to those who I managed to run in to on one or two occasions!

I feel I got to see a whole heap more of the country this trip than I did last time, and I have caching to thank for that.... and you guys to thank for caching!

I probably wont be checking the forum daily anymore... but I might stick my head in once in a while to see how things are going. Do forget if you come Downunder the best place to find me and the other wacky Aussies is our forum!

http://forum.geocaching.com.au/index.php :D It should look kinda familiar...

PAX! And thanks for the Ammo Cans

An rud a dúirt sé - agus :

Go n-éirí an bóthar leat
Go raibh an ghaoth go brách ag do chúl
Go lonraí an ghrian go te ar d'aghaidh
Go dtite an bháisteach go mín ar do pháirceanna
Agus go mbuailimid le chéile arís,
Go gcoinní Dia i mbos A láimhe thú.

May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

:D
