What does “Ol, ceol, agus craic!” mean?

I know it’s in Gaelic and can be seen in Fado Irish Pub. Anyone knows what it means?

    I don’t speak Irish, but “ceol” means “music,” and “agus” means “and.”

    An internet search provided me with “fun” for “craic.”

    In Scottish gaidhlig, ag’ol is ‘to drink,’ so in Irish gaelic, “ol” could mean “drink.”

    In which case, the sign means “Drink, Music, and Fun!”

    …Which is right and proper in a pub!

    “Drink, music and fun” is right, though you wouldn’t usually translate “craic”, you’d just say drink, music and craic.
