Blood Donation Clinic

October 20, 2014 6:00 pm to October 22, 2014 9:00 pm.

Give Blood

The Irish Blood Transfusion Service will be holding a blood donor clinic in the Bunratty Castle Hotel, on Monday 20th, Tuesday 21st and Wednesday 22nd October between 6pm-9pm.

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.
