Green Bay Packers

We will be in Athlone on September 8th and are looking for a place to watch the Green Bay Packer game. Any pubs that televise NFL games?

probably not likely....of course I could be wrong....not to mention if it's a early evening, or night game that would past closing time for pubs in Ireland......

Ask here www.boards.ie/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php… but I would say you would be extremely lucky to find somewhere showing it.

I believe that Sky Sports shows one game in each time slot on Sundays. You may get lucky as the Packers are one of only three games in the late afternoon time slot that day (10:25 PM in Ireland). The TV schedule does not seem to be published that far out and even the US national games don't seem to be set yet.

The 8th September is a Friday.

The Packers play on Sunday the 10th at 2025 local time in Ireland. (8:25 pm not 10:25om). Six hour time difference between Green Bay and Dublin.

Download the NFL mobile app and watch on your tablet or smartphone. Probably cheaper than a pub anyway.

I'm assuming that is the OP's arrival day. The Packers play on Sunday the 10th that week. The NFL never plays (regular season) games on Fridays and rarely on Saturdays - only at the end of the season when college games have ended. Basically one game on Thursday night, one Monday night and the rest on Sunday.

Oops - we both got it wrong. Sunday games are always at 1:00 and 4:00 (or 4:25) eastern time, so it is a 3:25 game in Green Bay (central), so 9:25 in Ireland.

Can't see any pub in Athlone showing it on a Sunday , but try boards.ie as recommended by Bean.
