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 .

Donnacha - who runs this every year is (afaik) planning it at the moment.

Thinking of heading up Maulin this year. It's a handy enough walk with three caches enroute, one which may be missing. I'll confirm once I check it out, as it has been a while since I was up there.

Weather (http://www.yr.no/place/Ireland/Leinster ... /long.html) for the day is looking good, however it it forecast to be cold, so please ensure you have the correct clothing and supplies.

I think Venture Cache may be missing. I tried to find it but couldn't. There seems to have been a lot of tree felling in the area. An email to the cache owner has gone unanswered. There is a chance that some one attending has found it and may know where it is.
