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 .

Happy St. Patrick's Day from Ostrava, Czech Republic 8-)

Post by kuceri » Sun Mar 17, 2013 6:50 pm

Hello to Ireland. We organised our first event ever to celebrate Ireland were we lived for almost nine years. Last Paddy's Day we were in Newbridge and today I hope we started a tradition in celebrating St. Patrick's Day here outside the Irish pub in Ostrava.

Because we miss our friends and Ireland, we will come to see you in May and I might organize some event too :mrgreen:

Mervyn - it was fun and everybody enjoyed it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCmWIQALBH4
I am looking forward to see you too!!

Eileen - thanks. I am not fully decided what kind of event it will be. I am thinking to do something similar like a New Year's Resolution Event, some hillwalking in Wicklow with finish in the pub maybe? I will let you all know!
