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 .

It's nearly BBQ time again.

Post by CraigsBar » Mon Jul 27, 2015 10:16 am

Hi all,

It's time to start planning my end of summer BBQ again (did summer ever start this year?) So last night, after returning for a hearty breakfast in IKEA I created the event, hopefully to be approved and published soon.

It'll be on Sunday the 30th August this year, so loads of notice for all. If you van let me know via the event listing (and/or here) if you plan on coming so I can approximate how much catering I need to do.

Maybe post the link here? Also, a lot of people hang around the "Geocaching Ireland" and "Emerald Isle Cachers" Facebook groups rather than here.

Sorry Craig - I'm going to Achill for the weekend otherwise I would try to be there. I can attest to the quality of food, drink AND hospitality at your event having attended last year :D :D :D

Sorry Craig, 3 of us travelled last year but presently looks like we'll not make it this time.
Have a good one!

Awww, you'll be missed. There will be a caching chilli event in the winter this year so plenty of time for a free feed yet ;)

We did! Huge thanks to everyone who came. From what I can tell it was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Roll on next year [SMILING FACE WITH SMILING EYES]
