The Irish Blood Transfusion service is urging people across Kildare to donate next week.
The Irish Blood Transfusion service has said blood supply is at a critical level with only a couple of days of supply in stock coming into the bank holiday weekend.
It's urging people to donate if they can, especially -O donors, as it is a universal blood type which can be administered to everyone.
There are two clinics running in Kildare next week.

Glenroyal Hotel, Maynooth from 3.45 until 8pm.
