The Irish Blood Transfusion Service is appealing for donors in East Clare to attend their clinic tonight as their supplies reach critically low levels.

They’re holding a donation drive in St Anne’s Secondary School in Killaloe tonight between 6pm and 9pm.

Stocks across all blood groups are low as the hospital system comes under pressure, with just four days supply left.


The IBTS Operations Director Paul McKinney says they’re reaching dangerously low levels and it’s vital people donate.
