Patrick Callan with blood donor clinic staff member Kate Butler

Lifesaving blood donations are essential even at this festive time of the year. Reminding us of this is Kilkenny man Patrick Callan, from Granges Road, who recently donated his 100th pint of blood!

Patrick gave the gift of blood this Christmas when he made his donation in Kilkenny in early December. Just imagine how many people he has helped or even saved over his years giving blood donations. What a wonderful achievement.
