The Republic of Ireland’s postal service has apologised for spelling “the moon” wrong in Irish on its new commemorative stamps celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo landing.
The postal service, known as Na Psot, launched the stamps last week.
Four astronauts with Irish ancestry are featured on the stamps.
The Irish word for moon is “gealach”. But the stamp spelled “gaelach”, which means being Gaelic, Irish or relating to the Scottish Highlands.
It’s like finding out that a Scot actually is mean, a Welshman voluble.
