EACH WEEKDAY EVENING, TheJournal.ie brings you five things you should know before you head out the door.

2. #POPULARITY: The most recent poll on political parties has shown that Fine Gael gained one point since June, though Labour and Sinn Féin are both down.

3. #DUBLIN BUS: Unions representing Dublin Bus workers are expected to ballot members on a new deal next week after talks at the Labour Court wrapped up at 5am this morning.

4. #ASSANGE: Julian Assange has said he will not publicly address Swedish sex allegations before his bid for office in Australia because “Australian men don’t like to talk about their private lives.” There now.

5. #GIANT BABY: A woman in Spain has broken a record, giving birth to a 13lb 6oz baby – without an epidural. Both the mother and her giant baby are said to be doing well.
