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 .

Must be the quality of caches placed by the longest serving active cacher....whoever that is?

Got a couple of locations in mind for new caches. Need to find containers that don't cost me €6.00 each. :roll: Any ideas?

Looads of ideas......and loads of containers, from nano to ammo, and all at rock bottom prices! I'm in the process of setting up an on-line store (it's not live just yet), so if you want to pm me (or ring me on 086 8592969 ) and we can talk.

For those that attended the Friday event in Cork our geocaching entrepeneur was handing our promotional merchandise (a pencil) emboldened with the new web site address - geocachingireland.ie. It's not live yet but you can get a flavour of what he's going to stock. =D>

I have been paid a gratuity (one pencil) for making the above statement. :|

Hello all.

I'm very new to all this but have taken the plunge and placed a few caches already.

Looking forward to joining in now and again on here - I have a couple of questions already that I'll post as soon as I've found my way around.
