EVERY WEEKDAY EVENING, TheJournal.ie brings you the five stories you need to know before you head out the door.

1. #ABORTION: The Irish Medical Organisation has defeated a motion calling on members to support regulation in relation to the provision of abortion services where there is a “real and substantial risk” to the life of the mother. It also rejected motions calling for the government to legislate so women who become pregnant as a result of rape or incest or who are pregnant with non-viable fetal anomalies can legally access to terminations in Ireland.

2. #DEATH: A man has died following a partial collapse at Lisheen Mine in Tipperary. The driver was trapped in his vehicle underneath a rockfall yesterday afternoon and was pronounced dead a short time later.

3. #LABOUR: Nessa Childers has left the Labour parliamentary party, stating she “no longer wants to support a government that is actually hurting people”.

4. #CULTURE: Dublin’s main library is to move to to Parnell Square as part of a €60 million development to create a new cultural quarter for the capital.

5. #OOH-ER! There was a slightly embarrassing moment for the watchdog regulating appointments in the public service this afternoon when TheJournal.ie highlighted the presence of an unusual link on its website. Yes, that is a link to an online ‘Sexy Girls Lingerie’ store on the Commission for Public Service Appointment’s site.
