Hello.

I have been racking by brain and can't think of any good places to watch the World Cup in Stockholm.

Are there any outdoor big screens that might show it? Or does nobody care if Sweden didn't qualify?

I'm thinking I might just go to the dubliner for the England games. But that doesn't fill me with much joy and excitement.

Any tips from previous years?

All good questions.

Try the park next to the Clarion Hotel Sign in central Stockholm.

Cheers

It had a big screen for the Euros 2 years ago. When Sweden were in it. This year I'm trying not to get my hopes up! I have a similar dilemma... somewhere good to watch it which isn't full of plastic Irishmen!

Please let me know if you find anywhere. Or even a good bar with a good TV! This a major European city, why doesn't a big screen tv in a park exist????

The term is more correctly "plastic Paddy" and can be summed up as those with a tenuous link to Ireland who would none the less like to think of themselves as Irish.

Everyone loves the Irish! The Irish are regarded as fun, friendly, welcoming and decent people who like a drink or two. Millions have emigrated all around the world for hundreds of years, so naturally lots of people have some link to the Emerald Isle. A fantastic country to visit, although it rains a lot and if you've lived in the Uk, it has too many similarities in the bigger cities. But go to Dingle Bay, Donegal etc and you'll find the more natural Ireland.

Have been in numerous cities outside Ireland when it's St Patricks Day and the locals love it. There seems to be an Irish pub in every city I've visited, although now some are not run by Irish people and the pub's styling comes delivered in pre-packed boxes similar to Ikea packs.
