Dr Eddie Rooney, chief executive of the PHA said: "I am delighted that 26% of Northern Ireland's population has registered as donors. However, the good work needs to continue if we are to save those who are still waiting for a suitable organ.I hope the stand in CastleCourt will make people aware of the importance of organ donation and encourage them to register as a donor."
