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 .

What a cool little ghetto to bring us to! Too bad it was already gone 9pm when we arrived, only a few of the pubs left open. There was some kind of film crew filming an interview in front of the church on the other side as we arrived but we didn't stick around to see what it was about.

Again, quite easy, spotted it right away - before the wife too, as she normally gets these ones before me. I was taking photos of the nearby streets and out staggered a stereotypical drunken Irishman, he was in good spirit as he yelled out "Take a photo of me, we are real Irish!" - I laughed but now I wish I had because it would be a good photo to go along with the story!

Hopefully not the last cache in Cork, but we have found the people of the city fun, friendly and great to talk to - thankyou for your hospitality.

Onto a pub for a pint of Murphy's - aah that's so much better than Guinness!
Clearly am uninformed foreigner! ](*,)
Up is good!!

I put this cache on the watchlist, just to see who the astronauts are.
