EACH WEEKDAY EVENING, brings you the five stories you need to know before you hit the road.

1. #GLASGOW: A number of people have died after a rubbish truck ploughed into pedestrians on a busy Glasgow street in Scotland.

2. #DÁIL BAR: The public house facility within Ireland’s most public of Houses was under scrutiny again today as a row erupts in the Seanad over whether some senators had a lot of drink on board coming from the Dáil bar to vote on the Water Services Bill last week.

3. #THAT’S THAT: Speaking of water charges, the Revenue Commissioners will definitely NOT be collecting them, okay?

4. #LIFFEY RESCUE: Hundreds of people watched a dramatic rescue today at the Liffey boardwalk as a man was hauled out of the water by emergency services.

5. #FIANNA FÁIL: Not a good start to Christmas week for Fianna Fáil as Senator Mark Daly complains that nobody in the party has yet told him that he’s lost the party whip; while a failed by-election candidate has given both barrels to Micheál Martin saying his presence on the campaign trail cost him votes.

Catch up on all of today’s news including a Corkwoman’s incredible generosity, an Irish restaurant review attracting legal action, and an embarrassingly bad ATM theft attempt>
