BLOOD WANTED: Last week a spokesperson for the Irish Blood Transfusion Service was on the National airwaves telling listeners and viewers that blood supplies in reserve were dangerously low and that just sufficient for five to six days supplies remained whereas the normal reserve situation would be five to nine days supplies. He attributed this factor to the severe weather conditions with would-be donors unable to travel to the donation clinics because of the severe weather conditions. The blood groups O and A negative were especially very low. There was an emergency clinic at the South Court hotel before Christmas seeking donations. The weather conditions have caused many problems for all services and this will persist for as long as the hard weather continues. The Irish Blood Transfusion Service will visit Limerick on January Tuesday 2i when it will hold a donation clinic in the South Court hotel from 5.0-8.0 pm.
