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 everyone I have the following for sale

Ive only had it a month and used it once to find where bats dare and then that evening to find on reflection its a cache!

Its some piece of kit and I am really impressed by the beam it gives from such a small torch and the battery life is amazing when using good duracell batteries the only reason I'm selling it is to upgrade it to the 2nd next model up (mammy is treating me for my birthday!) It comes with the lanyard and case that has the MOLLE type belt clip and the case will also hold a pen and a pair of tweezers for example. When purchased it retailed at 54euros but I will let it go for 40...reply if interested!
