Henry & Scholes..who’s next ..and ‘up for the craic* ?

(Title adapted/ lifted from a classic Mike Scott song :Bring ‘Em All In )

*Craic’ or crack is a term for fun, entertainment, and enjoyable conversation, particularly prominent in Ireland. Another sense of crack, found in the north of England, is “news, gossip” which influences the common Irish expression “What’s the crack?” or “How’s the crack?”, meaning “how are you?”, “how have you been?”, or “have you any news?”

An older, related, more widespread, sense of crack is “joke”, as in crack a joke or wise-crack.
