Did you know that the Swedish Irish Society has been building friendships since 1949? The Society’s continued existence is a testimony to decades of volunteer commitment.
We help Swedes come in contact with Irish people and culture, and we
help Irish people in Sweden, particularly Swedish-Irish families,
experience Irish culture, traditions and language.
As a member-driven organisation, run entirely by volunteers, we are completely dependent on active
memberships for survival and input. We have many members who have been with us for years and years, but we also love to welcome new members. Each one brings their energy, enthusiasm and ideas, and ensures
we respond to the evolving needs of our community.
All Society board
members give their time voluntarily.
Membership fees cover the running costs of the society (printing, banking/payment fees, postage, website hosting, materials), subsidised member registration fees for events, and partial costs of certain events.
