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 .

Unfortunately I don't think I'll make it either, need to spend some time at home for a change.

I'm out too. Unfortunately, a family event down South takes precedence. :(

Were taking advantage of a gift voucher we have for the Roganstown Hotel in Dublin. We are staying on Friday and Saturday night, so should get out and around the area before and after the event.

Really looking forward to it, though hoping there are going to be some people prepared to keep picking us up off the ground every 1/2 mile, as we are so unfit.

Its a challenge we want to face head on. Neither of us have done such a long walk at once before.

Just wondering if someone would be kind enough to give me a spin to this event?

I'm living in Rathmines, but can get the bus/luas somewhere, or indeed cycle !

Great to meet everyone, especially Caroline and newbie Tina and son and all the other new faces. And a second event for Eily...oops and Tom! You will be as bad as the rest of us before long. Great to see so many of the Northern branch down also.

This little chappie was serenading me when you guys were all off enjoying yourselves!

26 is Maeve's daughter. I don't think she has her own account. Don't recall 29 but a hat and sunglasses make her difficult to ID. Possibly she was with 27?

The lens I used that day is 75-300mm so I would reckon it was somewhere at the longer end of that. Isn't it funny, when you get a nice opportunity the little bugger is either looking the other way or has his rump turned to you or a leaf or branch is in the way? I got about 20 of this guy and I was able to get in pretty close but I only got two pics of him in a facing position. Thank goodness for digital!
