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 .

Yeah it's a rockin place alright, would love to drop my CV in there :D And yeah, Annie is as nice a person that you'll meet! :D Very interesting person, who is one of the lucky few to work for Groundspeak!

Only managed to get 2 caches in the downtown area, I grabbed these after the GC HQ, but didnt grab any more as it absolutely lashed rain down on me, and I had to call it a day!

I had looked at trying to go out to the APE Cache too, but with my legs as my only mode of transport, that wasn't going to work!
