Leagan Gaeilge

Mountbellew was the first agricultural college in Ireland, set up by the Franciscan Brothers in 1904.  The original college was demolished in 1971 and replaced with the new building in 1975. 

In 1986, the Franciscan Brothers Agricultural College established a link with GMIT to deliver a Higher Certificate in Business Studies (Agribusiness).

Today, GMIT students in Mountbellew can choose between two degrees (Rural Enterprise & Agribusiness or Agriculture & Environmental Management), and spend time between the Mountbellew and Galway Campuses.
