More Craic Agus Ceol

According to  author, Berne Biege one of the  "Top Ten Irish Words Everybody Needs," is craic agus ceol.  Berne says, "pronounced "crack agus col" (with a drawn-out o)," the phrase "means 'crack and music' and is the usual description of Irish nightlife. The word craic is not Irish - the English "crack" was simply re-written in an Irish form. The original meaning is 'fun."
