Hi All,
Do you know your Eircode? I will admit, I don’t. An ambulance was called to a house in the parish recently. Ambulance delayed as no one knew what the Eircode is or where to find it. I would suggest we all l earn our Eircodes and put them up on a prominent place in our homes where everyone can see them. Pat.

On behalf of The Irish Blood Transfusion Service Please pass on our thanks to all who contributed to the running of this Clinic. 246 Donors attended our Blood Donor Clinic in The Riverside Park Hotel. This generosity and commitment to helping others is very much appreciated.
