Campaigners have once again called for changes to be made to Ireland’s restrictive blood donation rules surrounding gay and bi men, and men who have sex with men.

The renewed call comes after the Irish Blood Transfusion Service (IBTS) was forced to import blood from Manchester last week due to a shortage of blood supply in Ireland.

The UK has recently relaxed their rules around blood donation allowing men who have sex with men more ease in donating blood.
