"Craic" has a couple of very broad meanings:
1.) Fun, enjoyment, divilment, merriment, banter etc.
2.) Story, gossip, news, etc.
3.) It can also be used as a greeting - "What's the craic?", "how's the craic?" or "s'craic?" meaning "what's up?", "what's happening?", "what's the story?", or just just "hello"/"how are ya?".
The term "craic" originates from Irish/Gaeilge, and is has now become part of spoken English in Ireland.
"Come into to town, it's great craic!"
"Jaysus mighty craic!"
