A Blood Donation Clinic will be held at The Oakwood Hotel Monday 4th, & Tuesday 5th February from 5pm to 8pm and at Bunratty Castle Hotel on Wednesday 27th February from 5pm-8pm. 3,000 blood donors are needed each week in Ireland. Only 5% of the population are blood donors. Approximately 70,000 patients will have a blood transfusion in Irish hospitals this year. One in every four people will need a blood transfusion at some point in their lives. There is no substitute for human blood. Be one of those who give blood. It saves lives!
