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 .

Heading off to Glasgow tonight for the weekend! :mrgreen:

I might even get a chance to find a cache or two as well!

Excellent as always! :mrgreen:

Didn't do many caches, only 5 found and 1 DNF. But I wasn't there for the caches on this occasion! :wink:

I'll be heading back there in April all being well!

I don't know If you were having a laugh or not, but it's certainly not sunny up here in Stornoway! Yikes :-)

How long you over for?

Here until Wednesday just!
It was briefly sunny today inbetween rain showers and howling gales! :mrgreen:
But the Tesco food fair did have lots of nice free food! Including some rather delicious haggis pizza! ;)

Well guys and girls, after nearly a year and a half, I shall be returning to Dublin.
Will still be working for Airtricity, and should be starting in the office in Sandyford on the 2nd July.

Looking forward to picking up all the'new' caches around Dublin, and of course meeting any new cachers too!

See you soon :-)
