2. #ASHLING MURPHY: A second man has been arrested by gardaí investigating the killing of Ashling Murphy. The man, who is in his 30s, is being held by gardaí on suspicion of potentially withholding information. 

3. #REOPENING: A group representing publicans said they will “make every effort” to provide later opening this weekend if given the go-ahead by the government.

4. #UK: An embattled Boris Johnson chose defiance in the face of defections and anger among his own MPs in a rowdy House of Commons this afternoon.
