Blood donationThe Irish Blood Transfusion Service will be holding a blood donor clinic in the Bunratty Castle Hotel, on Monday 30th, Tuesday 31st May and Wednesday 1st June between 5pm-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.
