An Irish primary school have paid a unique tribute to the late rugby great Jonah Lomu.

Kilberry National School's fifth and sixth class performed an impressive 'An Haka Gaelach' following the death of the All-Blacks legend.

"An bhfuil sibh réidh?" the Haka leader called out before the students perform the traditional Maori war cry.

With instructions called out 'as Gaeilge' and the class having their moves down to a tee, it was certainly an impressive honour.

The performance is 'An Haca Gaelach ar son Jonah Lomu' and was led by Mr O'Sullivan from Kilberry National School, outside Athy, Co. Kildare
