The Bolas Heathens: We went past it for the first time in ages this afternoon and all the tanks have now gone so there seems little point in the cache now.

It' sone we were never that happy with so we'll take this chance to retire it gracefully. Thanks for everyone who visited.

Geocache Description:

The inspiration for this one came to us after recalling a great family holiday in Schull in the west of Ireland last summer. You will see what we mean when you get to the cache site!


Suggested parking is at N52 42.859 W002 27.679 which is a lay-by on the A518.

The cache is in a semi-urban location with the potential of lots of passing muggles so stealth may be required when retrieving it. Due to the proximity of the cache to houses and other buildings, please do not try this cache in the dark as we want to respect the neighbours.

Please ensure that the container is not clearly visible from the path when you replace it.

Please bring a pencil or pen to sign the log sheet as none is provided.

You are looking for a nano - it's a dog tag holder (see the picture below), spray painted black for a bit of extra cover. We'd loved to have put a bigger cache in the location but when scouting the site we saw a few teenage muggles passing by and did not want to run the risk of them finding the cache and removing it.

The cache container

Nearby you may also want to note the roundabout at N52 43.217 W002 26.610 – this has nothing to do with finding the cache itself but it related to the theme of the cache.

We've just replaced the original logbook and have scanned in the original one - see below:

Note: I use this cache to virtually store some of my own Geocoins (so as not to clutter up the Inventory in my profile) - the coins are not actually in the cache.
