Barry McNamara is in a league of his own when it comes to teaching. Taught me Irish for 3 years in the junior cycle. I used to hate Irish up until I joined his class. He made it fun and had me actually enjoying going to his lessons. He jokes around a lot and has the craic for most of the class, but still gets more work done than any other teacher could do,even in a double.
When he's in a good humour, he's great! But if you catch him on an off-day...you better keep your head low and stay quiet.

I hated Irish before I had sir but now I actually like going into the class. He's fun to have but you actually get some work done, even if we spent half the class talking about random stuff we'd still get more done in the last bit of the class than some teachers would in a double.
