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 .

Has anyone managed to have any luck getting proper permission from anyone in DCC for cache placement in parks? Got something in mind but would need to get an official clearance and it would be handy if I could point someone to someone else who already is in the know.

Hi, I am thinking of hiding a cache in a Dublin park owned by the DCC. I am wondering myself how people went about this, how did they deal with it? Are they open or not to it?

Does maybe anyone have anyone in particular to talk to from the DCC which would be familiar with GC?

Any help appreciated, thank you!
