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 .

Last BBQ of Summer

Post by Tmsr » Thu Sep 04, 2014 7:47 pm

Lovely evening to be out and about and we're planning to be be West on Saturday/Sunday. Wondering if there's likely to be any other guests for Craigs Bar's BBQ event on Sunday afternoon around Mountbellew way. Hope there might be another Will Attend or 2 in the offing...

Not sure what the plans are for Sunday as my brother is home from the States but could be tempted to take a spin out, not least of all because it would be a new county for me :wink:

Am off for a few days in Donegal, will be ticking off my final county, a Jasmer, hopefully Malin Head and a few Evil Northwest boxes. I did think of going via Sligo, but thats a little bit crazy, even for me!
