EVERY WEEKDAY EVENING, TheJournal.ie brings you the five biggest stories of the day.

1. #PA O’CONNOR: The killing of a young Limerick man in a crowded bar in Limerick last weekend was “brutal” and “futile”, his funeral mass heard today.

2. #MALLOW: A murder investigation has now been launched into the death of Conor Quinn following the completion of a post mortem.

3. #FAKE NEWS: US President Donald Trump has denied criticising British Prime Minister Theresa May, dismissing as “fake news” an interview with The Sun in which he attacked her Brexit strategy.

4. #CHINA: An explosion at a chemical plant in southwest China left 19 dead and injured another 12, the latest industrial accident in a country where lax regulations often lead to tragedy.

5. #DROUGHT: A status yellow drought advisory warning for the country has been extended to 3pm next Wednesday by Met Éireann.
