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 .

subject [GEO] ESIguy & Park Girl contacting from

Hello Kersti,

I was wondering if you could help us. My husband and I are avid geocachers from Billings, MT (USA). We cache under ESIguy & Park Girl. My husband will be arriving in Ireland for a 2 week vacation in 2 days. Would you be able to give me the geocaching names of a few geocachers in the Dublin area that he might be able to meet up with for coffee and get some "tourist info"? I would greatly appreciate ANY help that you could give us. He is travelling alone, so it would be so nice for him to have a local contact. Our names are Vernon and Cindi Austin.

By the way, I got your contact from the event that you have scheduled for 9/14.

Thank you so very, very much!

Cindi Austin (Park Girl)

Can't help you but might be worth posting on FB too?
Some gal would giggle and I'd get red
And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head,
I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named "Sue."
