Paint the Town Red
Some of Dublin’s most iconic buildings highlighted their support for blood donors around the country by lighting up red for World Blood Donor Day on 14th June.
The Convention Centre, Dublin’s City Hall, The National Concert Hall, Lafayette House beside O’Connell Bridge and the Irish Architecture Archive “went red” in honour of Ireland’s many communities of blood donors.
“The international event falls on June 14th each year and aims to raise awareness of the importance of blood donation and to thank regular blood donors for their commitment to saving lives. We are delighted to have these landmark buildings on board for this special occasion”, Clare MacDermott, Marketing Executive, Irish Blood Transfusion Service.
