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 .

Welcome to the forums :)

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

In Dublin
There's 1507 active caches -- is there any lists that are ones that celebrate famous Irishmen
List so far is ====
James Joyce = Ulysses
Bono. = bono cache ( more killiney park then the man )
C.s.parnell = Parnell park ( the park then the man )
Bram stroker = Dracula
Robert emmet = let my epitaph be written
Michael Collins = Collins barracks ( more the museum then man)
ALSO

So far I've seen church series and stadium series , James Joyce series , what other series are there
Around Dublin ?????????????
Is bridges over the Liffey a series ? ?????

Any suggestions towards any of these - even a forum that discusses such list or series Cheers
HAPPY CACHING

The Firefly series, by abbeyackbar, ranges from Howth to Farmleigh. Some of the originals have been archived but those that remain include some fiendish hides.

Also, Sidetracked could be considered a series, as could the Blackrock Power Trail.

Hi from Germany. I ("SeanOR") Will be in Ireland in the first week of March with my mother ("EWE&me"), my brother ("GLUBSCHII03") and my father ( the tourist guide) to visit my grandmother. I`m so looking forward to finding a few caches while I`m over. I`m thinking of planting a few too. I`M looking for caches in the east and southeast that are large enough to take Travel Bugs and Trackable`s as I have a collection from caching friends to deposit on my journeys. Does any body know any sutable caches??? :?: :D :?: . It would help when they are frequently visited as a few trackables that I have must travel a long way. I hope to maybe meet a few cachers on my travels. SeanOR. 8)
