Tehran - The legation's splendid North Kamranieh Avenue mansion is being mothballed after years of abusive address mayhem.
A global embassy address checker has long listed the Irish embassy as being located at 'No 8, Bomblast Didit Street, Tehran 19369'.
A source close to ambassador Paddy O'Moonshine said today it should be 'No 8, Bonbast Nahid Street' - as any damn fool in the Foreign Orifice business should know.
The announcement comes as the Iran government published an update on the imminent sacking of the British ambassador following a lengthy spat over the US assassination 'plot' to take out the Saudi envoy to Washington.
Diplomatic sources have yet to confirm that the Irish embassy will now take on the onerous task of fielding UK-related business as the British embassy is relegated to 'also-ran' status.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is 104.
