Blood donation

The Irish Blood Transfusion Service will be holding blood donor clinics in the Bunratty Castle Hotel  on Thursday 28th September from 5pm to 8pm.

3,000 units of blood are required every week. 1,000 people receive blood or a blood product every week. 1 in 4 of our population require blood at some point in their life yet only 3% of our population give blood. This is not enough.
The giving of blood is painless and harmless and your blood will help to save lives. New Blood Donors are urgently needed. If you are not in a position to donate blood yourself, you still can help by encouraging someone you know to do so.

September 1, 2017 to October 4, 2017.

Pope Francis RPope Francis has designated the period between 1st September and 4th October as the Season of Creation. In these times we encourage you to have a new appreciation for the beautiful world around us.

God our Father,
awaken within us a renewed appreciation for the wonder of creation
and stir up in us a sense of awe for the splendour
with which you have adorned our world.
Help us to care for our world, so beautiful, so immense
and yet so fragile.
Allow us some quiet moment to surrender
to the whisper of your love in the gentle breeze
and in the warmth of the sun.
May the essence of your presence, shimmering through creation
fill our entire being, through Christ our Lord.
