Appeal To Cork Blood Donors To Give Blood

The blood supply in Cork is low after the Easter bank holiday weekend


The IBTS is appealing to blood donors to attend clinics in the coming weeks. 

The blood supply in Cork is low after the Easter bank holiday weekend and a special appeal has now been issued to help with rebuilding the stocks ahead of the upcoming May Bank Holiday. 

The IBTS is reminding people that 1 in 4 people will have a life saving blood transfusion at some point in their life and just one donation can save up to three people 

The weekly blood donor clinic is operating at St Finbarrs Hospital from Monday to Thursday and this week the mobile clinic is in Carrigaline GAA Hall from 5 to 8.30pm tonight and tomorrow while on Thursday the clinic will be operating from 3pm to 5pm and 7 to 9pm at Colaiste Treasa in Kanturk
