    According to the Urban Dictionary:

    1. Craic


    Irish word for fun/enjoyment that has been brought into the English language. usu. when mixed with alcohol and/or music.

    'Bhi craic agus ceol againn'
    : We had fun and music.
    Fun doesn't really cut it though. General banter, good times had by all.
    Also, a person who is good fun/great company.

    It was great craic.
    She's great craic when she gets going.
    He's great craic when he has a few pints on him.
    What's the craic?
    How's the craic?
    The craic was mighty.


    Note: Very tricky to get away with saying this in the US without getting strange looks for police officers.

    2. Craic


    Irish word, refers to good times, as well as scandal/gossip/goings on. No real English equivalent.

    Last night was great craic!

    What's the craic?

    Er......sorry about that David.
    Craic sounds like "Crack", and I couldnt resist mutilating the English spelling of Back to produce this hilarious witticism.
    ( Well.......ok.......... not that hilarious ...perhaps...)

    I was over in Dublin a few months ago, and, in fact, the Craic was not so much mighty.....as mighty expensive. The place has gone Money mad, to be sure, to be sure, etc, etc,

    regards Joe
