blood donation in Ireland

Last night, I tried to become a blood donor.
I went to the clinic (from 19.50 to 21.40) only to find out that...
if you answer yes to this question

Because of the risk of variant CJD you cannot donate blood.
* UK includes Northern Ireland, England, Scotland, Wales, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.

 = = =

However, you can give blood in Northern Ireland!

In 2018, I think that this is a scientific mockery...

How can NHS accept this CJD risk but not the National Blood Centre?
Why this test has not been developed yet in Ireland?

How many people who live now in Ireland and they have been in the UK between 1980 -96 are now excluded from this offer to the Society?

Really sad that after being a blood donor all my life...I can't keep doing this...
