Good to Know: A common Irish saying for a good time is “The craic was ninety,” or sometimes “It was mighty craic.” This expression is used to describe a particularly enjoyable or lively event or gathering, emphasizing the fun and convivial atmosphere. “Craic” (pronounced “crack”) is an Irish term for fun, entertainment, and good times. Saying “the craic was ninety” implies that the enjoyment level was exceptionally high, reaching a peak of ninety out of a possible one hundred. So don’t be surprised if you hear this saying once, or twice, after enjoying one of these events!
