EACH WEEKDAY EVENING, TheJournal.ie brings you five stories you really should check out by 5pm.

1. #GOOD SAMARITAN: The new Civil Law bill has been published – and it might just make it easier for us to be nice. The new legislation will give better legal protection to citizens acting as ‘Good Samaritans’ or volunteers.

2. #DRUGS: A new report from the United Nations has found that Ireland has one of the highest death rates resulting from drug abuse – almost twice the European average.

3. #TRAMCO: Gardai are still questioning a teenage boy this afternoon over an alleged rape of a 15-year-old girl in Tramco nightclub in Rathmines, Dublin last night.

4. #GLASTONBURY: U2 are preparing for their Glastonbury debut tonight – but so too are the anti-capitalist protestors who have turned up at the festival claiming that the band dodges paying tax.

5. #BOXING CLEVER: More sports success for the Irish today: boxers Ray Moylette and Joe Ward have won their respective finals and taken gold at the European Championships in Turkey.
