And we’ve got the scoop on where to find the “craic” in White Rock. What is craic, you ask? This Gaelic word doesn’t have an exact English translation – the closest you’ll get is “fun”. So put on something green (or risk being pinched by a leprechaun), grab your friends and family and get craic-ing!
