The Swedish-Irish Society was founded in 1949 by a group of Swedish friends interested in Ireland. Since then the society has been building friendships between the two countries, promoting Irish culture in Sweden and has gradually also become a hub for Irish and Swedish-Irish in Sweden. We organise events throughout the year and membership is open to everyone who shares our interests!
Here's some of the things we've been up to during the past year:
