EVERY WEEKDAY EVENING, brings you the five stories you need to know as you head home.

1. #NAMING NAMES: Mary Lou McDonald is causing a stir in the Dáil by naming several prominent former politicians as being accused of tax evasion.

2. #HIS OWN WORDS: Audio has emerged of Jonathan Corrie being interviewed about his life a few months ago. He was found dead near Leinster House this week.

3. #GET READY: Fianna Fáil has already started picking candidates, as speculation rises about a general election in 2015.

4. #WORK IT: The number of unemployed people in Ireland has dropped to a new post-recession low.

5. #BUT OF COURSE: Gene Simmons, The Demon, “that guy out of Kiss”, was visiting the Dáil, it turns out, because he’s old pals with Fine Gael TD Pat Breen… Makes sense.
