The Irish Blood Transfusion Service has made an emergency appeal, as blood supplies have dropped to unstable levels.

There is currently just a three day supply of blood left in Ireland and the organisation is calling on blood donors to “make a special effort” to donate this week.

The IBTS is aiming to secure 1,500 donations over the coming three weeks to restore a seven day supply.

Those who have O Positive and O Negative blood are particularly needed and blood donation clinics are being held across the country at the moment.
