600 - that's the number of people in Ireland that are awaiting life-saving organ transplants. 

This week marks Organ Donor Awareness Week, and the Irish Kidney Association is urging everyone to have a discussion with their loved ones about their wishes around organ donation.

Isabel Terry from Cork has been waiting 14 years for a transplant. She is now on 24 hour oxygen and is on the waiting list for a double lung and heart transplant. 

Isabel joined us alongside Mark Murphy, the Chief Executive of the Irish Kidney Association.
