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 .

I'm thinking of giving this a go on Saturday, providing I get through all the roadblocks and speed checks that will no doubt accompany this Bank Holiday weekend. Any takers?

(edit: Sorry - I don't know what it is with me not putting information in posts these days - the cache page is here.)

That must be one of the longest outstanding FTF caches left in Ireland!

Good luck :)

edit to say:
Just checked and it is! There was one other Serpent Hill but it's logged as being found today.
Obviously the guy was too knackered to write a full log :shock:

And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head,
I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named "Sue."

To be honest, I didn't even know it was there. I've wanted to climb Brandon for some time now, and just checked there was a cache there as I thought about placing one on top. Fingers crossed I'll find it - and that the weather will afford me the famous views that allowed St. Brendan to see America 8)
