In pictures: Irish fans acting the ape in Gibraltar

Ireland soccer fans have started arriving in Gibraltar ahead of tomorrow night's game.

While players will be gearing up for their Euro 2020 opener, spectators get to enjoy the nation's attractions and meet the locals.

One group from Ballybrack and Shankhill took to monkeying around with some particular natives, the Barbary Macaques primate.

The gang took selfies with the apes, the only wild monkey population on the continent of Europe.

If Ireland win tomorrow night, the animals surely won't be the only ones running wild.
