Galway Mayo IT has issued an apology after staff were recorded insulting students.

In a video being circulated online, one person is heard asking whether one student "has something wrong with her".

Another person replies saying they thought they had "better check Access to see if she’s on the list someplace for something".

The leaked videos have prompted a response from GMIT.

Its President Dr Orla Flynn has said "I would like to wholeheartedly apologise to our students for the data breach that has caused such deep hurt and dismay. GMIT is known as a student-centred institute and some of the comments made by our staff do not reflect the values to which we aspire. We are taking the breaches of GMIT policies and data protection legislation very seriously. Apologies will be issued to the students directly concerned."
