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 .

Just have to say a huge thank you to Spycaleb and indeed to the Two Amigos for organising such a wonderful treat for us all in Sligo over the weekend. You even did a superb job on the weather which is some achievement! Some smashing caches along the way too.
Great to see and chat with all the company new and old...and the very old even!!

Thanks again!

I only made it for Sundays trek, and thoroughly enjoyed the day.
Thanks to Spy and the Amigos for organising the event and the caches.
As always it was great meeting with such a genuinely nice bunch of people... and Guinness the dog!

Wow :!:
Axel your album is brilliant. Should sent on a copy to the Sligo Toursit Board. Then we might attract too many visitors and ruin it all. :oops:
