Alas, as the OED tries to become more populist and now accepts words that are wrong or don't exist if the current crop of uneducated dimwits who have been failed by teachers who themselves were never taught their own language, I believe "craic" has entered the dictionary as "a word from Irish". Bloody maddening.

My understanding too Gary - Northern Lionel dialect rather than lowland Scots. I know that may be justification in some quarters for changing it but to do so is just small minded palatics by small minded people who have no real regard for language - the sort of ballixes that would deface their own fleg to try to make a point. Harrumph!

Re Charlie at full back it might have worked playing a deep backline but was a waste when the ball seldom made it past the inside centre or off a slow recycle .

On kick return running into an across field defence every team put two men to mark him one low one high to stop the off load because he couldn't or seldom kicked once started to run and lost his advantage of pace by a jig before contact .

I won't argue with experience Ron'n, however at 63 farting remains one of life's great pleasures and a potential source of amusement.

I know you vaguely knew/knew of my friend Mervyn Hardy, he went on holiday with another mutual friend Peter. It was a drinking and tennis holiday, one day as Peter rose for a smash, as he hit it he followed through in more ways than one and shat himself.

Two points, 1) Peter was not in his late 60s 2) Mervyn found it hilarious, Peter not so much. :lol: :lol: :lol:

David Niven would have killed for that anecdote.

if your like me you don't need it and I've just eaten mine - it's an act of trust - I 'm getting immune to poison much to the wife's dismay .

I bought a lottery ticket the other week the top prize was £ 109m - I didn't win and the wife didn't talk to me for 3 hours .

craic is the Irish spelling (by way of phonic translation) of the English word crack (meaning a fissure and also meaning news/gossip/conviviality) The 2nd of those modern English words is from the modern Scots and before that possibly the middle English.

So if you're speaking Irish - I have no problem with you using 'craic'. The problem is when you choose to translate it for use in English.

The word 'Craic' was invented by a joint marketing committee of Bord Failte and Guinness in the late 1970s in order to sell more stout and get people to spend their holiday fortnight in the pishing rain.

My offer of 5 pints still applies to anyone who can find the spelling of craic before 1975. This offer has existed for many years and Holywood Mike has bought more beer than me. Should you wish to claim please call me on my teileafon and we can discuss it.
