Ah Frank Dowling! What a legend.
Ah Frank Dowling! What a legend. Beetroot indeed. I remember specifically Fr.Corry giving hima whack across the face with a duster in the corridor leaving us all speechless, the big white duster mark across his beetroot face!
Was also the soundest teacher ever! Also remember the Paris trip and think he was on the ski trip too!
Used to hold one ear, and smack the other one leaving a ringing noise in your ear all day! I can hear it now! Ohh! Lawsuit!
Had Frankie D many years ago, possibly 12... Still the teacher I learned the most from. Sound lad, loves underlining.
5th year history. Utterly fantastic teacher and such a cool guy. Very easygoing and every class is a laugh with him, but he gets the necessary work done. He knows literally everything there is to know about American history too. On a semi-related note, he is a great laugh in 4th year too and he'll get on well in 5th and 6th if you done 4th with him. Drives a Jaaaaaaaag too!
Good teacher. Good guy. A 'Form Teacher' with our interests in mind, an interesting History teacher and kept us out of trouble in Paris 1989 and found me lost cycling in France in fifth year. Cheers

A character. Unique teaching but very effective. Great work ethic.
