An amusing, if somewhat eccentric teacher to have. helpful if you were good at his subject. However he does not cover any biology in the pre-JC course and is notorius for absence at the moment.
Mr McEvitt is a teacher that you will learn alot from but if you dont have your equipment he wont be pleased. aisling gilligan
What a Genius. Truly a Legend among men. "Judging by my eyebrows.." "lets rock on news reader dave" aldow i suspect hes a destroyer of worlds
Yet again old Barney has been slated. He ruled with a rod of iron he was a good science teacher and had a sense of humour. I am a physicist because of him.
very nice guy,but not a good teacher he would be better in a lab on his own.
He should be a lecturer in University. He is Strict be people like that. Is great when he is in a good mood. Keep up the good work Sir!
I loved the subjct,enjoyed his class, he could be very arrogant!
Best teacher I ever had. Very strict and had a filthy temper but he had a great old-world sense of humour and communicated a genuine love of the subject.
Brilliant Teacher. But the proper translation for the Edison quote should be "Yes i will have the caesar salad with an onion vinegarette"
gave a great backround to physics and made it fun but didn't finish the course. funny man with a great sense of humour.
That comment about you should spend money on e not grinds!! Sums him up Cracked
He warms to his students after a while. Great teacher, and a good laff, "Lets Tread Boldly people!"
Barney is passionate about physics and makes the subject enjoyable. Gives his students a real love of the subject. My God, he like his Coke though!
Good teacher.But didnt really have leaving cert in mind when he was teaching the course.Spent2long on areas that were of his own interest+on practical writeups.
Knew far more physics than most of my college lecturers; however, didn't complete the course. BTW, the 1% inspiration quote on the wall - Edison, not Einstein!
A teacher who actually cared thyat you learnt the material. Harsh, but fair. A good teacher, Old scholl, but very effective
Everything this teacher covered was made really interesting.but i felt the course wasn't very exam orientated.i did ger an interest in physics though.
i couldnt learn anything from this guy... really think he is a joker...
An eccentric physicist as they all should be! Inspires a love for the subject, not great for the Leaving though, half the class took grinds.
I love the guy. Great teacher to me, but a little scary at first. Wants to teach!
