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 .

Another event in Cork - late July, perhaps

Post by Eclectic Penguin » Mon May 28, 2012 12:10 pm

With the great success of the Cork And Bull event in late February, I figure it's about time to have another event cache in the Cork area. I have a new venue lined up. I've already talked to the management and checked it out personally - definitely looks as good as The Bull where the last event was held and as with last time we'll have an area to ourselves.

I propose this event to take place in The Viaduct Inn, just under the famous Chetwynd Viaduct on a weekend towards the end of July (or beginning of August). This is about as far out from the South Ring Road as the Bull - but on the main road to Southern Cork. I know Geocaching events are a matter of "if you build it they will come"* but I wanted to air it here first to see if folk have an opinion on date/venue.

*Field of Dreams movie reference, if anyone was wondering...

My brother in law and I will be visiting from the USA from July 21st-July 29th. I was thinking of hosting an event in Bantry on July 27th...in the evening. Anyone interested?

EP's event was published and would be the day after on the outskirts of Cork City, I could possibly make it but wouldn't know until closer to the day.
