About the Society

The Swedish-Irish Society was founded in Stockholm in 1949 by a small group of friends of Ireland, and has grown during its 65 years of activity to its present membership of around 200 people.

The purpose of the society is to encourage and develop the mutual cultural ties between Sweden and Ireland, and to strengthen and promote friendly relations between the two countries.

Most of the members live in the vicinity of Stockholm, where the meetings usually take place, but we have members in other parts of Sweden as well as in Ireland and other parts of the world.

The society organises between five and seven events during the year, and the aim is to provide a varied program. Our most popular meetings are the Christmas Party in December and St Patrick’s Day, on or around 17th March. Our program also includes social events, pub evenings, talks on Irish music, literature, history and other aspects of Irish life, and we arrange visits to the theatre, concerts and films to attend shows with Irish interest.

The society occasionally publishes a Newsletter, but as time goes on we rely more on more on this website, e-mail and social media to spread news and articles of Irish and society interest.
