The Association is also urging people to ensure their organ donor card is visible and asking them to permit Code 115 to be included on their driver's license which indicate that you wish to be a organ donor.
Aine May O'Mahony received a double kidney and pancreas transplant and she says organ donation changes people's lives.
Organ Donor Cards are available from the Irish Kidney Association or can be procured by freetexting the word DONOR to 50050.
