Gibbon named after football star
Jun 06 2012
Ireland fans will be hoping goalkeeper Shay Given can ape the agility of his new namesake during the upcoming Euro championships.
A baby gibbon born in Cork's Fota Wildlife Park has been christened Shay Gibbon after the veteran Donegal shot-stopper in a public vote.
Stephen Ryan, marketing chief at the park, said the three-month-old ape is an "agile gibbon", renowned as the fastest and most acrobatic of all primates.
