The New York Times was forced to publish a correction in the newspaper after misspelling Cork.

It appears that a journalist from the New York Times has confused 'The Rebel County' with cheese.

Irish novelist Gavin Corbett posted a clip from the newspaper which published a correction on a spelling error it had made with Cork in a wedding article.

It read: "The vows column last Sunday, about the marriage of Sunny Jacobs and Peter Pringle, misspelled the name of the city in Ireland where Ms. Jacobs had a speaking engagement. It is Cork, not Quark."

Quark indeed.

What would Frank O'Connor say?
