  • What's the craic? Craic being an Irish language word for good times/ gossip/music/ drinking or good clean fun.
    If asked this question by an Irish person, you are expected to give a reply which includes information on how you are, what you are doing, where are you going, with whom are you going there, have you any interesting gossip one might like to hear about, and so on.

  • Yep, agree with all the above and add that craic also means "atmosphere", as in "Great craic in the pub last night!"

    Bloomin irish! Ask her what's the difference between "idiot" and "eejit" will you?

    According to a recent discussion they both mean idiot, but are different words rather than just different pronounciation of the same word :shock: :roll: Gods knows what that's supposed to mean!

    What about censored ? So is it the irish for the english 'f' word then? or is it just a nicer way of sayin it or am i mistaken completely? and it will turn out that censored aint even a proper word :oops:
