Girlfriend pays heartbreaking tribute to 'one punch' murder victim Luke O'Reilly

The grieving girlfriend of tragic Luke O'Reilly has revealed: "I don't think I'll ever be the same."

Luke, 20, died in hospital on Monday after being seriously assaulted in Tallaght, Co Dublin on Halloween night.

He was discovered with apparent head injures on the Old Blessington Road at around 3am.

Gardai have launched a murder investigation and it's believed they are probing the possibility that the student was hit once in the head before he fell to the ground.

His girlfriend of three years, Rebecca Buckley, was at his hospital bedside before he lost his fight for life.

The 18-year-old said it's been "unbelievably hard" and that the incident "came as a shock".

She told The Star: "Luke is so nice. In the years we've been together he has never had any fights or trouble.

"He was such a good person. He put everyone else first. No one was ever left behind with Luke. He was so kind and forgiving, he couldn't hold a grudge.

"I don't think I'll ever be the same."

Opening up about the last few days, she added: "I wasn't with him the night he was attacked and I'm still not 100% what happened still.

"I was with him yesterday along with his family and everyone is devastated."

She said the atmosphere in the community is "horrible".

Rebecca continued: "There's not one person that isn't heartbroken. Anyone who knew him knew how harmless he was.

"I wish he was here to see how much we all love him."

Recalling their future plans together, she said: "We planned to go travell ing together in Canada or Australia for a year and we were supposed to go to Amsterdam next year but we never got to book it."

A 20-year-old man was arrested on Monday in connection with Luke's death.

He is expected to appear before the Criminal Courts of Justice this morning, November 15.

Luke was studying accounting in Crumlin College of Further Education and had been due to start a new job before being hospitalised.

The sporty young man was one of three children and leaves behind a brother and sister.

Following his death, Luke's close pal James Blake told Dublin Live how much he will be missed by his friends.

He said: "Luke was one of the nicest friends anyone could ever have and everyone in Tallaght would agree, there was never a dull moment with him and he doesn't deserve this at all...

"Honestly, words can’t even describe how much everyone will miss him â€" if you knew him you’d know what I mean â€" and I feel so much for his family and childhood friends Reece and Aaron.

"We're all devastated and no day or party will be the same without him, we love you Luke."
