EVERY WEEKDAY EVENING,TheJournal.ie brings you the five stories you need to know before you head out the door.

1. #ADRIAN DONOHOE: Detectives investigating the murder of Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe in Co Louth last month have appealed for anyone who may have information about a child’s car seat, taken from the car used by assailants to escape to contact them. They are also seeking information regarding a mallet-style hammer found at the murder scene.

2. #COILLTE: A report published today has warned that the sale of Coillte harvesting rights would lead to the loss of as many as 2,500 jobs. The Irish Timber Council said the sawmill sector accounts for €2.2 billion of the economy annually and that selling off harvesting rights would see the purchaser export all of the available logs.

3.#MISSING: Gardaí in Dublin have asked the public for its assistance in tracing the whereabouts of David O’Reilly, a 48-year-old man missing for the past seven days. The Rathmines resident was last seen in the city centre area at about 8.30am on Tuesday, 19 February.

4. #BANK GUARANTEE: Minister for Finance Michael Noonan has announced the ending of the bank guarantee scheme for all new liabilities from midnight on 28 March. The minister stressed that the announcement will not impact the vast majority of bank customers as their deposits are covered by the Deposit Guarantee Scheme. However the end to the scheme will remove €73 billion of contingent liabilities from taxpayers.

5. #EGYPT: A hot air balloon caught fire and exploded today over Egypt’s ancient temple city of Luxor, killing 19 tourists. It is believed that the tourists were from Korea, Japan and Britain, as well as one Egyptian.
