    crack at the Mick

    hello,

    I wonder what that expression means (ref title). Something about the irish?

    best regards
    Dybvig from Norway

    ps: A line from Raymond, a bartender in "Withnail and I"

    Yes you are right it is a reference to the Irish.

    In the context of the play the Raymond is impressed about Withnail's claim to have served in the army in Ireland and that he had an 'opportunity to fight against the Irish'
