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?
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.
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.
A true cheesehead! Go Packers!
