WATCH: Irish Primary School kids perform Jonah Lomu 'Haka' tribute in Gaelic

PRIMARY school kids in Kildare have become an internet hit after performing their own version of the Haka in Gaelic as a tribute to the late Jonah Lomu.

Introduced by the orchestrator as 'An haca Gaelach ar son Jonah Lomu,' which means 'the Haka in Gaelic for Jonah Lomu', the Kilberry National School proceed with their own rendition of the war dance made famous by the All Blacks.
