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 .

No idea of quality but Lidl's stuff is usually not bad and at that price for the batteries I'll be giving them a try!

Not sure about the batteries but I bought a charger from either Lidl or Aldi last year and it's crappy slow at charging, taking at least twice as long as my Philips one. Saying that I think it cost less than €10!
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."

As I said I can't vouch for the quality but what can you expect for a tenner! :evil:

Might do alright as a back up though! :roll: But the batteries at that price are worth a look!

Aldi clip lock Lunchboxes - Rubbish clips break off, brittle plastic.
Aldi 'Hiking Boots' 19.99 are complete rubbish. Pink bunny slippers are better.
They might be at a price, but when it doesn't do what it is supposed to do...

The Hiking boots are not the same ones currently on offer, but I would not buy boots/shoes here again.
If the quality of their hardware is this bad, how can you trust their food, especially if its 'at a price'?

I've bought clothing from both Aldi and Lidl before and found it good quality.
