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 .

Barrow and Nore

I passed over the Barrow & Nore this morning and both have burst their banks. Hard to see where the river is, just a mass of water. I think all caches along the banks are probably out of bound for the minute. :?

Yes it was a nice ride down the river from Monasterevin to Athy two weeks ago.
Only one cache at that part of the river though, and I forgot to load it into my GPS, so I just enjoyed the fast flow and took some pictures :D

Super pictures...wonder if it has improved recently. We have one blank on the Nore river trail nearer the Bennettsbridge end and are in the area Sunday morning?

Having seen a find logged yesterday, we thought we'd take a spin out that way today. We had wellies with us but the amount of flooding in the fields adjoining the Bennettsbridge starting end put us off, and we continued on to Waterford. We'll be back when it's drier!
