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 .

Over the last few weeks the more observant of you will have noticed some of the caches in Ireland being published by a new name. I'm delighted to say that we now have a 3rd reviewer for Ireland called Cuilcagh

I'm also delighted to announce that the face behind the name is none other than Eileen/Blue Jay!

Graham and myself are really pleased that she has agreed to join our team and to work with us and the UK reviewers as part of our regional team.

I would like to be the first to publicly congratulate Eileen on her new role and wish all the best :mrgreen:
