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 Ballyferriter this evening.

Potential FTF (GC34XNY Armada) outside of the town. Hope to do Brandon tomorrow, weather permitting, and GCZ1RV The Navigator would be our highest ever cache. Then there's GC15BYM An Ghaeltacht which would be our third in the Ireland Extreme challenge.

If I've time on Sunday, I may try to log finds in Limerick, Tipperary & others for the 32 County challenge.

See the FTF went to a tourist from the USA.

2 from 3. The one at An Gaeltacht required more effort than I was willing to give, with an indecisive GPSr. Ran out of time to do ones on the way home in Limerick and Tipp.

Earlier this year I 'nabbed' an FTF ahead of someone who had travelled over from Australia and made an great effort to get to that one. So, on balance, the visitors from the USA deserved the FTF.
