EVERY AFTERNOON, TheJournal.ie brings you the five things you really need to know at 5 o’clock.

1. #DÁIL ÉIREANN: Enda Kenny has announced the full list of 15 junior ministers for the 31st Dáil, made up of nine Fine Gael TDs and six from Labour. Check out our slideshow of the new ministers of state.

2. #WHOOPS: The New York Times has corrected an article published earlier today which referred to Enda Kenny as a woman.

3. #GAMING: Microsoft’s Kinect for the Xbox 360 has set a new record, according to Guinness World Records, for the fastest selling device ever. Over 10m Kinect units were sold worldwide within 60 days of its launch.

4. #MEMORY: The public has been asked to participate in a Science Gallery exhibition which will help researchers gather information on memory.

5. #FESTIVAL: The line-up for this year’s Electric Picnic festival has been unveiled. Although the list was due to be released today, the festival’s promoter LHP told TheJournal.ie earlier that a hacker had published them ahead of time – on the EP’s own website.
