Mascot Luke... the most envied boy in Ireland

Lucky Luke O'Connor has been chosen as the mascot who will escort Trapp's Army onto the pitch at the Aviva tonight for Ireland's crucial clash with Germany in the World Cup qualifiers.

The soccer-mad 10-year-old St Pat's fan won the Herald Striker competition, which received over 500 entries.

Along with his parents, the Drimnagh boy was super excited to meet the team as they took a break from training.
