Make the time, it's worth it

Patrick is a family man and feels that giving blood is an important part of being a member of your community, it helps bring people together. People lead very busy lives. They may have a family, work, training, coaching etc… but Patrick believes that if you can make the time for training, you can make the time to give blood.

Patrick’s father gave blood and in turn inspired him to start donating when he turned 19 years old. They both used to give blood together in their local GAA club in Midleton, Co. Cork. Patrick hopes that his children will follow in his footsteps and become blood or platelet donors in the future. He encourages people to make the time to give blood as it’s worth it; you never know when who might need it, so encourage your friends or family members to join you and head to your local clinic.
