Blood supplies run worryingly low as Storm Emma and Beast From The East arrive

If you can get out to donate, act fast.

Irish clinics are urgently calling for blood donations in the lead-up to Storm Emma and freezing temperatures as the stock of O Negative blood is down to its last three days.

The Irish Blood Transfusion Service sent out the appeal to Donegal, Cavan, Clare, Dublin and Cork, all of which "really need" O Negative along with all other types.

In total, seven banks will be in operation nationwide today (27 February) and will be running until later this evening.

They are as follows:

Donegal Town, Abbey Hotel from 6:30 - 9:30pm

Cavan Town, Hotel Kilmore from 4:30 - 8pm

Clare, Ennistymon, The Falls Hotel from 5-8pm

Dublin, D'Olier St from 10-6pm and Stillorgan from 10-8pm

Cork, Donoughmore Community Centre from 5 - 8:30pm and St. Finbarr's Hospital, 3:30 - 7:30pm
