I have often seen this expression, "Ceol,caint, agus craic" in various bars, on t-shirts, etc. In the focloir, it defines caint and craic both as "talk".What is the distinction between the two words?

A Eibhlín, a chara,

The dictionary does define craic (pronounced crack) as conversation but the general meaning is great fun. So "ceol, caint 7 craic" means music, talk and great fun together. You want to be wherever those three things are.
