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

1. #SLIGO: A family member has discovered the bodies of two brothers at their home near Tubercurry. The 9-year-old boy had been stabbed, while his 21-year-old brother appears to have taken his own life.

2. #HEARTBREAK: The father of a 17-year-old girl killed when Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 was shot down over eastern Ukraine has written a savagely ironic open letter to those responsible for “murdering my loved and only child.”

3. #NO TAN DO: As of today, it is now illegal for under-18s to use sunbeds in Ireland, as a law from the Department of Health comes into effect.

4. #BOMBING: Israel shelled a hospital in Gaza this afternoon, killing five people, as the death toll in the ongoing conflict rose above 500.

5. #ALLEGATIONS: We are awaiting the referee’s report after claims that a Meath player was bitten during their heavy defeat to Dublin in yesterday’s Leinster Senior Football Final.
