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 .

Hi,

I have just started caching, which I am hoping to do with my daughter. She lives with her Mum in Dublin. I get to see her as much as money will allow.

I started with one local cache then went to the meet organised by Hairytoeman, which I really enjoyed, met some fellow cachers and picked up some hints and tips.

I will be going this Saturday to the Bally Cache Rally and hope to see you then.

Welcome to the crazy caching world Lawrence!

Hope you'll have a lot of fun!

This place is a mine of information! Just ask and someone will tell you!!!

Usually the correct answer too! :lol:

Welcome to the forum. Looking forward to meeting you on Saturday
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."

I'm sure you'll find lots of caches you could even pick up some extra ones in dublin when you picking Zoe up or leaving here home as I believe the city has many caches.
