Biography

A primary school teacher, Luke first played hurling at his grandparents' house with his father and two uncles. He believes that first touch is the most important skill in hurling, and would like to see umpires and linesmen have more influence on the game. The highlight of his career so far has been winning the Harty Cup with Midleton CBS in 2006, while outside of playing, his best memory is Cork's All-Ireland victory in 2004. The greatest player he has ever seen is Joe Deane, and apart from hurling, his favourite sport is soccer. As a child, he wanted to be a centre back! He's also good at ping pong, and the person he would most like to meet is Messi. Marooned on a desert island, he would not be without... a 5-star hotel!
