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 everyone.
Im new to caching in the past few months.
I was introduced to it by a friend who I believe joined recently (andymacmyc)
I started out getting a few without GPS but have really gotten into it recently after getting my GPS.
Its great to see so many familiar names I've spotted over the past while on the logs I've found and on Geocaching.com.

Welcome to the forums :mrgreen:

And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head,

Thanks very much folks for the warm welcome.
Im glad to see Im not the only one finding it fun to wade through brambles with GPS in hand and pen in mouth !
I just missed the last Milkshake event but hope to meet up with a few of yous at the next one.
Until then keep on caching and I'll try to get a few out there myself.

Have fun !
Lee
