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 going to Glasgow on November 29th for a day trip with spickers and my mum. We will be departing and arriving same day. Can anyone recommend any great caches in Glasgow that they have been to?

We've been in the Motorhome anytime we've been around Glasgow and as such, have opted to cache on the outskirts of same.

One of the best days we had was in D2D Country Park. This cache was the highlight of same http://coord.info/GC3J44H closely followed by http://coord.info/GC3HHT3

Nice we walk around a well maintained country park not overly far SE of Glasgow City.

I had to travel to Glasgow for work quite a bit about 2 years ago... and the caches in the downtown area were very average to say the least. Lots of magnetics under benches. I do recall the botanical gardens was worth a visit. I suggest you sort by Favourite Points and use that as your guide.

http://coord.info/GC59C0E is just next door to your event and the one I enjoyed most in Glasgow (I was there in the hammering rain for a few hours only before going to Ayr, where it hammered rain more).

http://coord.info/GC4TEV3 is a cool piece of artwork and a nice container too.

http://coord.info/GC36A0G I liked this one too... only because you got up close and personal to the motorway when doing it.

You can still log premium caches even if you're not a premium member ........

I know, but since I don't have a GPS I cannot enter the co-ordinates.

Getting the bus in 3 hours. Might do the Dublin Airport Bug Hotel. Have a plan on where to get off on the bus tour to get caches. Then host my event. Lovely :)
