Ballyhoura Country is pleased to announce the introduction of Geocaching to the Ballyhoura region.

Geocaching  is an outdoor recreational activity, first played in May 2000, in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver  or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called “geocaches” or “caches”, anywhere in the world.

A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook where the geocacher enters the date they found it and signs it with their established code name. Larger containers such as plastic storage containers  can also contain items for trading, usually toys or trinkets of little value.
