THREE people have stepped forward to offer their kidneys to GAA coach Shane Finnegan after a kidney donated by Joe Brolly had to be removed.
Mr Finnegan, a 40-year-old father, received Mr Brolly's kidney during an operation in London on October 3, but it had to be removed nine days later.
Brolly spoke of the "miserable finale" of hearing the donation had failed "after something that had been so exultant".
"It's a miserable situation for me but for Shane it was (particularly) agonising," he said.
"The clock is ticking. If things take a turn for the worse, as they inevitably will, the situation can't continue as it is indefinitely," Brolly added.
