The post service of the Republic of Ireland apologized for writing "the moon" incorrectly in Irish on their new reminder stamps for celebrating the 50th anniversary of & # 39; e Apollo landing.
The postal service, known as An Post, launched the stamps last week.
Four astronauts are featured on Irish stamps.
The Irish word for month is "chatter". But the stamp spells it accidentally "jail", which means it is Gaelic, Irish or related to the Scottish Highlands.
- Typically on millions of Australian banknotes
Instead of reading "The 50th Anniversary of the First Month Landing", read it now "50th Anniversary of the First Landing on Earth".
The error has been spotted on social media over the past few days.
"While the original Irish text was correct, the letters' letters in a letter concept were not retrieved at the definitive proof, before printing and releasing last stamps on July 4," An Post said.
"During the recent space exploration design process for Space Exploration, the letters & # 39; were & # 39; and & # 39; were & # 39; translated into an Irish language on two of four" "four stamps. "
A Post has said it has made arrangements to ensure that such mistakes do not happen again.
Retired Colonel, American Air Force and NASA Astronaut Cady Coleman launched the stamps.
She is one of the four astronauts who are on stamps, along with Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Eileen Collins.
