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 .

Hey, just introducing myself. Just started geocaching last week! using the IOs app on my phone. Seems like a great way to get out and already I've seen places in Cork City I've never been to, funny as I've been living here 30 years.

Any suggestion of particularly good Caches in the Cork Area, I've a car so transport is not a problem. Looking for something involving a nice hike on the weekend.

Thanks

Barry

Hi Barryhugh,
Welcome to the madness. We're Dublin based, but one of our all time favourite caches isn't too far from Cork City.
Check it out!
GC2YEVA It is a Letterbox Hybrid called Webbed Foot Froggy's Stash Cache by Spark_ie... great location and fun theme!
Hope you enjoy it,
tmsr
