The Republic of Ireland will welcome new guests in UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying Group D as Dublin is the setting for Gibraltar's first competitive away fixture.
• The nations are meeting for the first time at senior level. Their Under-17 teams met in a UEFA qualifier in October 2013, with Ireland winning the game in Yerevan 4-1. That was the Gibraltar U17s' first competitive fixture.
• The nations met again at U17 level on 22 September 2004; this time Ireland won 5-0, on home territory in Athlone.
• Gibraltar's first Group C match ended with their worst result in six since being admitted as a UEFA member nation: a 7-0 home defeat against Poland.
• This is only Gibraltar's second away fixture since joining UEFA; the first ended in a 1-1 draw against Estonia.
• Ireland defender Seamus Coleman turns 26 the day of the Gibraltar match.
