Blood Transfusion Service Appeals For Donors


The Blood Transfusion Service continues to appeal for donors.

There will be a clinic in Thurles over  three days next week starting on Tuesday, October 31st until November 2nd.

The Clinics are appointment clinics and those willing to donate are asked to call 1 800 222 111.

The evening clinics will be offering a first appointment at 4.50pm and donation appointments are scheduled until 8.10pm.

At present the most urgently required donations particularly of O negative, A negative and B negative – as these types are running low.

O negative is especially useful as it can be given to people  with all other blood types.
