EVERY WEEKDAY EVENING, The Journal brings you five of the biggest stories of the day. 

1. #SNOW DAY: A meteorologist at Met Éireann has said it was not clear until this morning that the snow was going to be as widespread and heavy as it is.

2. #NOWHERE TO GO: Asylum seekers sleeping on the streets near the International Protection Office in Dublin have called for help after the heavy snow caused their tents to collapse and soaked their belongings
