Episode 3: Irish Craic

Hey guys! The Craic is flying in Episode 3 of Make it a Double!: Irish Craic. In this episode we talk Irish Whiskey, Guinness being good for you, Pub life, Irish drinking tunes and of course Irish Craic among a bunch of other things. Craic is the Gaelic word for god times, but as we discuss we begin to learn that it’s more than simply good times it’s the special thing shared between friends that makes it the good times.

I talk with Annie Nice from Tir Na Nog, Downtown Raleigh’s Original Irish Pub. She’s a native of Ireland and shares her stories and experiences with us. Learn more and find out what’s going on at Tir Na Nog by visiting them at  On Sunday’s, Tir Na Nog hosts a Traditional Irish Music session.
