Commanded the classroom with complete control of students while allowing us to express our won thoughts and discuss. You really got the feeling that he was just as invested in our futures as we were. Very knowledgeable when it came to the syllabus and material, and broke everything down into manageable sections. Was always eager to help students understand, and was very clear in his teaching and what he expected of the students. Also, a genuinely fantastic person.
The best English or geography teacher there is. Hope to have him for the leaving cert 😁. Also Al if you are reading this have you dropped your phone yet?
The only teacher I actually like. He's real nice, and he always seems to know his stuff. Good lad
Of all teachers, I'll miss his classes the most. Did you know he was sick a while back? I didn't...
Best teacher in ASR. Cuts the crap from English syllabus by doing easier poems and focusses on giving solid answers. Besides that, I've never met a more interesting nor affable man as Al O'Connor. Just don't ask him about how he nearly died...
Top Marks, I have a lot of respect for what he does. He's humble too about how good a teacher he is. Overall, he's a very good man and cares about his students.
this man is a legend!!!!!!!!! i hav him for geography and its the best class :)payments

HIS SYSTEMS WORK WELL IN THE CLASSROOM. REALLY SOUND
wat a sensitive man he cares about everything in the world even all the little things in the world

Hard to put into words how much he put into the job. Very passionate about his job and it rubbed of on me anyway.
Had Al for geography. Knew his stuff and put on a good class. Cant think of a single person who disliked him.

Great teacher, has probably watched dead poets society a few too many times. Seriously though, gret teacher and very sound man, thanks for everthing al. Casso
Al thought me bout how to read makes our speaking english good
Al=Legend. Kindled my lifelong passion for Yeats. Needs to give the Smashing Pumpkins a chance, though...they're not as bad as all that, Alan...come on now..
Brilliant, genuinely knows what he's talking about! I still can't believe that I like poetry thanks to this man!
A remarkable man. If he's teaching you now I hope you realise how lucky you are. JL2000
Legend. Burned Grateful Dead's "American Beauty", Van Morrison's "Astral Weeks" and The Band's "The Last Waltz" for me, free of charge. Once again, legend.
Had Al a few years ago for Geography. Great teacher, even I got a B1 and thats saying something.
Al isnt so much a teacher,as a great mate who teaches!never met a nicer teacher.knows when to have a laugh and when to get down to work.the guy's a livin legend
Best teacher in the school ... next te Miss Markey ... and eh Philly Walshe and eh ...
Great teacher is our Statto and a nice guy thrown in to (Lenster)
Very cool! I gave him my homework once, by hosting over the inter-net! Al is the coolest and his little black car! go on the al :)
Al is a wonderful human being but ironically should be a little more open minded to the music of THIS generation...
AL IS A LEGEND... He is also a grest english teacher.. you can always have a laugh with him..and is a legendary GAA manager.. THE BEST THAT ASR EVER PRODUCED!
al good english teacher, me learn lots of him....dean
Al O'conner is a hero and should be a role-model for all teachers
