"Off-topic but a source of some curiosity to me: Other than the obvious
Viking connection, what connects the Swedes and the Irish? In other
words, why does Uppsala have an Institute for Irish Studies?" C.
It's just a part of the English department nowadays. Just one of the
many languages it's possible to study at Uppsala and other universities
in Sweden. Otherwise no connections that i know of.
