A new Head of Campus has been appointed to the GMIT Mayo campus.
Professor Neville McClenaghan has been appointed Vice President of the Castlebar campus, and comes to the GMIT from the University of Ulster where he held a number of roles.
He previously held research positions in colleges in Sweden and Germany, and has received numerous awards for diabetes research.
The appointment of a Vice President was one of the key recommendations made in the Higher Education Authority's working group report into the future of the Mayo campus.
Professor McClenaghan is expected to take up the post in February.
