Say what you like, but it's hard to beat the craic in Irish pubs
It is my first Christmas home in a few years and I would just like to say that it is really lovely to be back.
You miss so much abroad - but the people are what you miss most.
Out for a few pints on Christmas Eve, the craic was brilliant. The begrudgery, blended with some sharp wit and the way it glides off the intended target like so much water off the duck's back, is brilliant.
