Nice that they’re putting The Cranberries on an Irish stamp, shame they got the lyrics wrong!!!

Thanks to The Cranberries Newspaper for the info!

UPDATE – 5 APRIL

The Cranberries posted on their socials (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) a message regarding the lyrics error, the actual stamp will have the correct lyrics “as it seems”


UPDATE – 8 MAY

The set of stamps has been delayed (very likely due to The Cranberries lyrics error) and the new date of issue is tomorrow, 9 May 2019. For the occasion the official “The Collector” (pdf) has been updated and lyrics are now correct!

The set of stamps is valid for both international (U2 + John McCormack) and national (The Cranberries + Luke Kelly) postage, see different face values.
