A passionate Haka performance for the All Blacks
Members of an Irish Down Syndrome group performed a passionate Haka for the All Blacks prior to their test in Dublin last Saturday.
The All Blacks accepted the challenge and it was especially poignant for the Barrett brothers who have a Down Syndrome sister and who accepted gifts & fist bumps on behalf of the team.
The Haka was organised by The Together Academy who provide employment opportunities for Irish adults with Down Syndrome.
The All Blacks responded to the challenge on social media: “Thanks to The Together Academy for an awesome haka.”
The Academy’s Theresa Coveney said on Facebook: “UNLEARN. Whatever preconceptions you have, whatever you think right now. Unlearn. Our young adults are about to blow you away.”
And they did!
Sport at its finest.
