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 .

Good timing of Kilkeel CITO event on Saturday Apr. 26th

Well done to DucInc on the date set for the Kilkeel CITO. Not only does the Sat. 26th mean we can also attend GoldCircle's one in Dublin 27th and possibly make a pitstop for some Swedish Breakfast that morning. It's also the next available Open Day for the Nuclear Bunker at GC2WBNY, so we can head there from the beach while we are over the border. Add in a new d/t for us for the CITO, and the trip to Kilkeel is looking good.

It is also towards the end of the school Easter holidays and there are some interesting challenge caches on the way north too, so we're looking at doing a few on the Friday and staying overnight in the area to be refreshed for the cleanup on the Saturday morning.
.Hope some others might travel from the South too... We will arrange suitable weather in due course!
