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 .

Where's the castle, is it the place in the distance in the bandstand? Is that small or just far away?

Great clip from one of our most famous alumni!

Not so sure about the castle - as Bren says are we looking through the round window...
Reference too old for all you young'uns - don't think they'd have that on YouTube!

Are we looking at Church of St Augustine in Dungarvan?

Yes yes you are.... Surprising how long it took anyone!

Yes it was a brave effort, some howler decisions but I look forward to the day the IRB impose financial fair play rules on the Top14 and end the sugar daddy era.

Oh and BTW only good reason for an Irish team to win the Stumblin Cup is all four teams get to play in the main event, would have been gas to give them a headache by winning both in the same year!

C'mon Ciaran - it doesn't have to be a Munster castle this time!

Yip - Dalkey Castle GC3C4W1 (which of course, is not actually Dalkey Castle - that's in the Village).

Yay! Was planning on visiting tonight for some rock-climbing but looks like weather isn't going to play ball.

Here's one I could find. Not really a castle, but looks a bit like one?

This doesn't really count as a castle either, but it's distinctive enough to probably get a a quick answer:

That'd be the quick answer - it would have been obscure enough, but for tramyard and PENdragon placing caches all over the MCL area.

Well done!
