Some get a kick from craic

We have been listening to a lot of RTÉ podcasts lately and have been repeatedly startled by the word craic. People always seem to be casually referring to which pubs have the best crack, going out looking for some crack, how crack is really all you need. It’s hard not to picture Ireland as a nation of hollow-eyed refugees from an ’80s TV special. Just say no!

Speaking of social ills, R has noted mournfully that it seems wrong for Limerick to have so many problems when the poetic form named after it is so beautiful and uplifting.
