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 .

CITO in the Burren - CITO Holy Well 3 Tobar Phadraic - 20/04

My first ever CITO event will be held near Kilnaboy, County Clare, Ireland, on April 20th, 2013 from 11am (GC457A3)

This is a limited space where the clean-up should yield great results! I expect to get all the rubbish out of the grykes in the limestone pavement during and thanks to this event, so this is what I call instant and lasting gratification!

Oh and you will get a souvenir for your profile as well, because it is official GC CITO weekend. Join the rest of the world to do a clean-up up in a place that really deserves it.

Just for your info: On the Saturday 4 May at 5pm, there will be an event cache in Kinvara (GC42A0E). No work involved here - apart from lifting pints!

See you there,
