SAVE GMIT Mayo. Protect its funding.

SAVE GMIT Mayo. Protect its funding.

We are asking all members of our community to join with us in calling on Mayo CC to utilise their power to protect and secure more funding for the campus here in Castlebar. We are also calling on the Minister for Education and skills Richard Bruton to ensure that all necasary funds are secured and that a program be set in place to ensure the continued growth of the institute here in Castlebar.

Why is this important?

The GMIT Mayo campus is one of the foundation stones on which our community is built on. And has been since it first opened its doors in 1994. We must protect this vital resource for all the current students and the thousands of local and visiting students that could pass through its doors in the future.

Reasons for signing

  • GMIT Castlebar is my only chance at affordable, local 3rd level education.
  • I wanted to get a degree but it impractical for me to leave Mayo. GMIT Castlebar gave me the chance to get the third level education that I always wanted. As a result, I am a Heritage Studies graduate. I believe that the same opportunity should be available to others.
  • The continued provision of a 3rd level option for people inayo and Castlebar is vital to the growth and development of our town and county.
