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.
I still have fits of laughter remembering his classes. Best was when the fire extinusher was let off & we had to evacuate the lab.
"Forgot the ecstasy in your cornflakes this morning ?"
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.
Mr McEvitt if you are reading this, you are funny but the exams are mere weeks away if you would like to actually do the COURSE. Can I have an After-Eight?
He warms to his students after a while. Great teacher, and a good laff, "Lets Tread Boldly people!"
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.
Newton's 3 laws, i ll never forget them, since he made me write them out about 600 times! Hillairous 1 liners!"this is physics boy, not knitting"
Very funny guy, terrible teacher. Had to do the whole course myself. Best quote: "This is not BANANALAND!"
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!
Superb teacher - GIVE THAT MAN A CAN OF COKE!!! (deadly eclipse jeans)
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.
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.
